Minutes for a Firm Foundation


Gain an advanced understanding of effective minutes and how to apply this knowledge to situations in the workplace.

Effective minutes serve as a major pillar in the structural foundation of an organization. The information contained in these minutes provides historical facts, not opinions, for future growth and development of the organization. Too often, too much unnecessary information is included in the minutes. As a skilled paralegal professional, effective minute production is a key factor in not only the growth and development of the organization, but also in the professional advancement of the paralegal. By actively participating in this topic based on Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, 12th Edition, you should be equipped with advanced knowledge of effective minutes and be able to apply this knowledge to situations encountered in the workplace.
