“Hang on a Minute” by Alison Wallis, PRP

Why have minutes? What must be included in correct minutes? Where can you find out how to take minutes correctly? How are minutes made a formal record? What if minutes contain mistakes? Who can access an organization’s minutes?

If you have these or other questions, this Smart Meetings workshop will provide practical help. Emphasis will be given on helping secretaries take accurate, pain-free minutes.
