The legal requirements for the contents of meeting minutes include documenting the location, the meeting time, who is in attendance and any official actions agreed upon during the meeting. Clearly record anything that happens during a meeting in the minutes with help from a marketing and business management professor in this free video on business meetings.
Hi, my name is Mark, and we're going to look at the legal requirements of meeting minutes. Meeting minutes are required as a basic form of proof that a meeting has actually taken place. Minimum requirements in terms of these meetings are the recording of where, when, who, how and what. So, where was the meeting taking place? Location, in an office, in a city. What was the date and at what time the meeting was held. Who was there, who was present during the meeting? And, of course, anybody who was absent. What, of course, the meeting was about, the key subject. So this should be recorded. And, of course, the official actions agreed and to be taken by the participants. So in essence, everything that was recorded during that meeting is clearly verbally and written down, and can be used, of course, as a legal...legally binding document.
