Subject: Re: [chairs] From the TAB: Best Practices for Meeting Minutes

That's a good point Nancy. I do minutes that way but you are quite right - it is a duplication.

Dear Chet,

Your proposed template for minutes includes both a record of the agenda, and then description of how the agenda items were dealt with.  In the DITA TC, we include a link to the full planned agenda - all our agenda are stored permanently on the OASIS web site - and then record the agenda as it was addressed at the meeting, with the discussion - or a note if there was none about a particular item  - listed under each item, up to the last agenda item we addressed in the meeting.  (We don't always get to every agenda item; if we didn't get to it, its not recorded in the minutes, just in the list of agendas.)

I can't see any reason to record the agenda essentially twice in the minutes; folks are already plowing through a lot of material in them; there's no need to burden them with duplication.

TC Chairs, 

The TAB plans to draft a TC Chairs manual this year with the goal of helping those new to chairing an OASIS TC get up to speed quickly. 

As part of the brainstorming in prep for that, we crafted the attached best practices for capturing and sharing meeting minutes. The draft is attached in Open Office, MS Office, and PDF formats. You can also find it online at http://docs.oasis-open.org/templates/TCHandbook/Best-practices-for-meeting-minutes-v1.0.html

We hope you find it useful. 

Best regards, 

The OASIS Technical Advisory Board
