Corporate Board Minutes: A Director's Guide

The National Association of Corporate Directors, with help from the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, studied the recommendations on corporate minutes preparation from leading organizations in the governance field. We compiled the recommendations and discovered several basic tenets that form a framework to guide a director’s assessment of minutes.

This document contains many examples to demonstrate some of the outlined fundamentals. These examples were provided from the actual corporate minutes of a large multinational organization, whose assistance enabled the production of this report. Each real-life example has been “cleansed” as a precaution due to the sensitivity of the information.
