Company counsel will also rely on these corporate records to back up a legal opinion or respond to due diligence requests from potential investors' counsel or perhaps a company interested in acquiring your assets. Having up-to-date, clear and concise records of all Board actions will make those processes less painful. Record the motion to adjourn and the time of adjournment. Collect all mateials to be filed with the official minutes in the corporate record. Request that a board member or staff person review the completed minutes. Some corporations require that the minutes be distributed to attendees for review and edits before distributing the official, signed copies. Reproduce or transcribe the minutes, entering the text in a formatted document that includes headings, numbered or bulleted items, bold or highlighted items of importance and signature lines for the person responsible for preparing the minutes.
