The management of formal meetings and other decision-making processes and the maintenance of minutes and other related records is a core company secretarial function and a key element of the successful fulfilment of any company’s strategic goals and legal requirements. This handbook is a complete procedural guide to the law and best practice of company meetings and preparing and circulating accurate minutes.

The ICSA Meetings and Minutes Handbook covers both meetings of directors and members, with a special focus on the alternative procedures that can be used to avoid holding meetings (particularly by private companies) and the process of preparing for and managing AGMs of public companies. Throughout, the Handbook is informed by the latest legislation, regulation and corporate governance codes of practice, and is illustrated by relevant precedents and appendices.
