Introduction and Course Overview
No matter who you are or what you do, whether at work, Church, school or in the community, you are involved in meetings. Meetings are costly (think of it this way: each attendee multiplied by their hourly wage and multiply that by the number of minutes per meeting!). To ensure meetings are productive and worth the expense involved, three ingredients are necessary: an assurance of closure, a strong chair or leader, and accurate minutes. It has been said that if the minutes of a meeting are not accurate, then the meeting may just as well not have taken place.
If people can’t remember or agree on what actually occurred at a meeting, how can the group effectively accomplish its objectives? This workshop will enable participants to understand their role as a minute taker and the best techniques for producing minutes that include all the essential information needed.
Specific learning objectives include:
- Recognize the importance of minute-taking.
- Develop key minute-taking skills, including listening skills, critical thinking, and organization.
- Be able to remedy many of the complaints that beset minute-takers.
- Be able to write minutes that are suitable for formal meetings, semi-formal meetings, and action minutes.
- Be an efficient minute-taker in any type of meeting.
- Meeting agreements and templates
- Knowing what to record
- Techniques for recording minutes
- Taking minutes in an interactive meeting
- Be able to prepare and maintain a minute book.
