Proper Minutes Lead to Happy Hours: Minutes and Record Keeping - Lessons Learned
Hosted by Faegre Baker Daniels, LLP
A panel from Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, consisting of moderator Jeff Sherman, Dan Williams, and Matt Stamski will provide a free-wheeling and wide-ranging discussion of the many approaches to the drafting of corporate minutes. They will highlight the risks and pitfalls of certain techniques and best practices for corporate secretaries when recording board meetings. They will update us on "long-form" vs. "short-form" minutes; use of board portals; distribution of proposed resolutions; note retention; and electronic recordation. They will offer lessons from recent court cases and answer everything you always wanted to know about corporate minute-talking, but were afraid to ask.
