Minute Taking Services

Minute taking is the process of capturing and summarising the key points, discussions, and decisions made during a meeting, seminar, or any other organised gathering. 

It consists of preparing for the meeting by going through the meeting agenda beforehand. During the meeting, it consists of recording the date, time, and location, and a list of the attendees, including their names and positions, and then listening carefully and making detailed notes on the key discussions, decisions, and action items. 

The minutes are then formatted into a structured and clear format, reviewed for accuracy, and distributed to the relevant parties.

Importance of taking minutes

Minutes provide an official record of what transpired during a meeting. They document discussions, decisions, and action items, which can be crucial for legal or compliance purposes and can serve as historical references. That is why it is crucial to take accurate minutes to serve as a reliable record of discussions and decisions. 

In regulated industries, minutes are often required to demonstrate compliance with specific rules and regulations, and they may need to be submitted to regulatory authorities. By law, the South African Government requires that companies keep minutes of all board and sub-committee meetings – see the Companies Act No. 71 of 2008, therefore it is best if a professional and qualified Minute Taker takes the minutes. 

Minutes help in informed decision-making by summarising the pros and cons of different options and the rationale behind decisions. This is particularly important for strategic planning and long-term goals, therefore well-documented minutes are very important.
