Minutes Statement

Governance Institute and the Australian Institute of Company Directors have collaborated on a joint statement to outline current issues in minute taking to support our members and guide debate on this topic. 

The practice of minute taking has attracted heightened scrutiny in recent months. The statement summarises the key principles, provides our view on matters to be included in minutes, and considers the approach to board papers and document retention policies.

We obtained feedback from our members and also sought counsels’ opinion on some particular issues related to minutes to add legal context to the conclusions, recommendations and positions taken in the statement, which apply to both board minutes and board committee minutes.
