Minutes of meetings are not transcripts. They're summaries, detailing events and things like boardroom motions made, passed and carried. Minutes are primary records of these meetings. In some cases they're also subject to company rules for the methods of keeping records. Minutes are used as the basis of formal records in terms of decisions made. A vote of directors is recorded as a decision of the company executive. Minutes of meetings may be challenged for accuracy in disputes.
Examples of Minutes Taken at a Meeting:
|The board voted to accept the offer of contract from ABC Inc to supply pipes and plumbing fittings.|
