What are Meeting Minutes?

Meeting minutes are notes that are taken during a meeting as a record of what was discussed. It's an important part of any meeting to make sure all those involved are on the same page with decisions, updates, and action plans so that work can be pushed forward.

Acting as a factual record of the meeting for its members, meeting minutes provide a vital source of information to attendees as well as to those who were unable to attend the meeting for some reason. Meeting minutes capture the essence of the meeting so that all major viewpoints of it get documented for future reference.

Why are Meeting Minutes important?

Everyday business, teams, departments, etc conduct meetings. However, some do it better than others. Since meetings are an important part of brainstorming ideas, making decisions and pushing the business forward, meeting minutes are crucial for ensuring those decisions don't get lost in translation. When you have documentation like meeting minutes, all attendees and non-attendees can be on the same page.

Without documenting meeting minutes, its highly likely that all of the attendees will have different recollections of the meeting than you. Moreover, there's always the risk of forgetting what was discussed and who was charged with what task. This is why it's essential to create meeting minutes as it provides written documentation of what the meeting was about and what was agreed on.
