An agenda lets everyone know what is going to be discussed in the meeting. It helps people decide if they should attend, and also helps them be prepared for the meeting when they do attend.

The Brown Act requires that every topic that is going to be discussed appear on the agenda, and that nothing is discussed that is not on the agenda. This ensures that everyone can be aware of, and participate in, the deliberations of government.

This guide is designed to give you everything you need to create agendas that are complete, easy to understand, and compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
