Business meetings are important in any company where business issues are discussed for the progressive development of the company. Business meeting minutes are important records of the business meetings conducted so that there is a good follow up on the points of discussion handled at the meeting.
Business meeting minutes are also used for reference purposes, in case some member was absent from the meeting or to settle a dispute over the point of contention discussed at the meeting.
The template of a business meeting minutes may contain the following header:
* Company Name
* Company Logo
* Date of Meeting
* Purpose of Meeting
* Start and End times of Meeting
* Called by
The body of the business meeting minutes will record what have been transpired during the meeting:
* Action By
* Date of Completion
The minutes summarize the discussions of every issue taken up during the meeting with follow up actions by delegated persons with a certain deadline for task completion.
Reports that were conveyed during the business meeting must also be recorded in summary with further information on the comments, feedback or further actions to be taken with the presented reports.
The minutes can be very detailed if it is an important business meeting to ensure that no important information is left out which may be detrimental to the smooth work flow for the company.
