A chart with specific sections to capture important moments from the meeting, such as the topics to be discussed, is an efficient way to record meeting minutes. Preparation of this worksheet before the meeting, as well as a personal shorthand or visual notes system, is beneficial to streamline this process.
Significant details to capture during the meeting include the members in attendance, the purpose of the meeting, the primary agenda items discussed and any accompanying decisions. Other possible details of note include the date and time of the meeting, any announcements, and any corrections or amendments made to decisions from previous meetings. Online tools are available to help with meeting minute creation, including services from Meetin.gs, LessMeeting, After the Meeting and Minutes.io.
