If you’re a seasoned minute taker you’ll know that how the minutes are presented will go a long way towards its readability.
I get a lot of questions on my minute taking courses around what would be a good template to use.
The first thing is to find out whether your organisation has a preferred template and, of course, this should be used.
If there’s no prescribed template then you can use whatever you like. However, a couple of things to think about:
- Am I taking minutes at a formal or an informal meeting?
- How much information will I need to be putting in my template?
- Who is my audience?
I’ve gathered together eight minute templates which are pretty much the standard these days. These templates, with a description of each, are available for FREE under FREE RESOURCES. Hope you find them helpful!
If you have a super-duper template that you’d like to share with everyone, please let me know at email@example.com.
