12-step formula for taking organized meeting minutes

When just the thought of creating the official meeting minutes makes your writing hand freeze, take note: Preparation starts well before the meeting.

Keep this simple checklist handy:

1. Review the agenda, familiarizing yourself with the topics and any unusual jargon.

2. Read minutes from past meetings, noting both the content and the style used.

3. Learn who's who, so you'll recognize participants by sight and know how to spell their names and use their correct titles.

Ever wonder how you'll ever take all those notes down? Or what you should write down? If you don't like shorthand, try BakerWrite Speedwriting.

4. Ask the leader to provide any agenda changes, at least a day before the meeting.

5. Create an outline for your notes using the agenda to create headings, and leave space to record information.

6. Use a sign-in sheet to keep an accurate attendance record. At some meetings, you may also need to document if key participants leave the room during the course of the discussions.

7. Customize your note-taking system. If you don't know shorthand, develop your own code.

8. Focus on the key points. Remember, this isn't a transcript.

Do you have to take meeting minutes, jot down telephone messages, write long lists of tasks from your manager, and remember those on-the-fly comments? Can you do it quickly? So many of us take notes and yet have no structure or system for writing them.

In recent years, there has been a myth that note-taking skills are no longer required for most administrative professionals in this digital world. But as most admins know, note taking is still a sought-after skill. Join us Friday, July 8, for a new twist on note taking.

9. Provide nameplates or draw a seating chart to help you keep track of the players. In large gatherings, ask the leader to remind participants to identify themselves when they speak.

10. Record the session as a backup and to assist with verbatim notations, such as the wording of resolutions. Be sure to obtain permission from all participants before you record the meeting.

11. Type your notes immediately after the meeting, while your memory is fresh.

12. Ask the meeting leader (and other participants if required) to review the draft minutes before you distribute the final version.

Following this formula will keep your minutes organized and the jitters at bay.
