Meeting notes is a real art. It’s got to be organized + accessible + inclusive.
- Facilitator role holders, you write the agenda in the meeting notes so people know what to expect
- Secretary role holders, you record discussions and decisions so that they’re accessible to all
- Coordinator role holders, you anticipate what needs to be on the agenda and meeting notes support you in figuring out what needs to come next
