Creating minutes for some meetings aren’t just beneficial for some businesses, but essential as a part of their constitution. Minutes are a way for the concerns of members of a board to be noted, and for formal discussions of finances and other issues within the business to be discussed openly and frankly. These records can be taken down by a secretary and then referred to by the secretary during the next meeting. Because of how minutes involve members of a board volunteering to complete certain tasks, progress can then be contrasted in the weeks and months following an action taking place.

In minutes, there is a set structure to how they are usually formatted. Usually, set milestones include the beginning and the end, where the chairperson of the meeting will open with apologies from the people who couldn’t attend the meeting due to other circumstances. Another common landmark at the end of minutes is the ‘any other business’ section, or ‘AOB’ for short. This is used to discuss any issues which have only developed once the minutes have been prepared by admin staff.

There are plenty of templates for minutes available online, and browsing through them can be extremely useful if you are aspiring to become a secretary or an assistant to a high-powered executive. Through already having an intricate understanding about how these official documents are formatted, you will be seen favourably be executives who will be looking to employ a person who will require minimal training to step into the role.

Whether you are recording a business meeting or have someone taking notes it is beneficial for all those in attendance. In order to verify and/or dictate new policy or issues that have been mutually agreed upon. Human beings are not robots and do not have 100% recall all the time.

I agree with both answers but would like to add: it enables one to view who actually attended said meetings.
