Board development programme: Effective recording of board and committee meetings, December 2021
Date: 09 December 2021
Venue: Virtual event via Zoom
The effective recording of meetings is essential - whether it be in the dissemination of information throughout your organisation, or the impressions and conclusions formed both internally or externally by the regulators and the general public.
Ineffective minute recording can have a detrimental impact by creating the wrong impression or failing to provide evidence of effective governance. Failure to accurately record discussions has also been identified as one of the issues that can often lead to frustration amongst those attending the meeting.
This workshop explores the key principles of effective minute taking along with an insight into what the regulators are looking for in terms of effective meetings.
Who should attend?
Those who record minutes for the board and committees in NHS trusts and foundation trusts
This course is suitable for all levels of experience - whether you are new to minute taking or have been minuting for years and require a refresher.
I would recommend that everyone who takes minutes goes on the course, even those who have been doing it for some time, as it allows time and space to examine what you do and how you do it and to look at things that can be done differently.
Explore the essentials of effective minutes including what should and should not be minuted
Develop an understanding of the purpose of an agenda, minutes and papers
Clarify the key duties and responsibilities of the minute taker and the relationship with the chair
Develop key skills in effective minute and note taking
Provide an overview of what the regulators want to see to help identify what should be included in minutes
Deliver practical exercises to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your minute taking
Provide the opportunity for you to meet and network with peers.
