Minutes of Board of Directors and Board Committee meetings are very important and should be carefully prepared and managed.  Many corporate directors do not recognize the importance of the proper preparation of Board and Committee meeting minutes and, therefore, often do not focus on the skill set that is required for a Corporate Secretary to artfully record the proceedings of the Board of Directors and its Committees.
