We often get asked by our clients what they should include in minutes of board meetings. I’ve come across the attached free guidance by ICSA – The Governance Institute that addresses a range of questions that directors and company secretaries should find useful.

The guidance deals with issues such as:

  • The responsibility for the production of minutes
  • The level of detail to include
  • The style of writing
  • Editing of minutes (when you can and can’t edit minutes)
  • Access to minutes (if shareholders or other parties have a right to see the minutes)
  • Retention of the notes of the meeting.

You can access the guide by clicking here.
