Stream Recording ($85 AUD)

Better Boards is pleased to present "Marvellous Minutes" in partnership with Jaqueline Wilson, Associate @ Russell Kennedy (Corporate & Commercial).

Minutes are an integral part of Director, Committee and Member meeting procedure. Whilst the practice of minute taking has evolved over the years, many people still prepare minutes the ‘same way we always have’ because they are unfamiliar with the legal scrutiny that has more recently been applied to minutes, nor are they familiar with the currently recognised best practice with respect to minutes.

This webinar will explore:

  • the legal requirements with respect to minutes;

  • tips on what to include, what to leave out and why;

  • best practice governance processes with respect to approval of the minutes;

  • tips with respect to maintaining a legally compliant minute book;

  • retention obligations; and

  • some ‘curly’ issues that can arise with respect to minutes.

Presented by Jaqueline Wilson and Felicity Iredale, this webinar is suitable for Directors, Committee members, Executives, Company Secretaries, governance and compliance officers, and minute takers.
