Minutes

Minutes should be detailed enough to give an accurate record of the attendance at the meeting, the content of the meeting and clearly follow the agenda.  Having good minutes prevents time being wasted by going over ground which has already been covered..  The secretary is responsible for taking minutes and ensuring they are circulated.
