Role of the Recording Secretary
The recording secretary has a critical responsibility — taking minutes. When disputes arise and lead to legal action, official meeting minutes may be the only documents scrutinized in the case. However, you know a recording secretary is more than just a minute taker. You’re also a vital link to the chair of your organization and a key player in assuring that meetings are efficient and productive. It takes a keen eye and a thorough understanding of parliamentary procedures to observe the proceedings, take accurate notes, explain business pending and maintain order.
This class will help you become a more effective player in your tribal organization’s meetings and proceedings. You’ll learn about motions and how they should be handled, special rules concerning quorum issues, motions that are out of order, automating the minute-taking process and voting requirements. Most importantly, you’ll learn the parliamentary rules that pertain to minutes and how to best summarize, draft, format and disseminate them.
