Minutes are often taken for granted, but the quality of your minutes makes a big difference to the effectiveness of your board. Clerks, secretaries, and board members will find surprising insights into what makes powerful minutes in this webinar.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Determine which of four different types of minutes will serve your board best.
  • List the correct content of minutes—and what should be omitted.
