Guidance For Documenting Board & Committee Minutes

Well-documented board minutes are critical. Yet, much confusion still exists about the appropriate level of detail.

If your board has ever come under legal or regulatory scrutiny, then you know the importance and sensitivity of well-documented board minutes. Yet, much confusion still exists about the appropriate level of detail: When should boards be thorough and when does it pay to be brief?

In this episode of Inside America’s Boardrooms, Megan Baier, Partner with Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, joins host TK Kerstetter to outline best practices for recording board and committee minutes. Length of the board’s discussion, substance of the discussion, the industry in which the company operates – these are all factors that influence the level of detail that should be included in board minutes. Baier also makes recommendations on whether board members should request to have their dissent documented.
