Publish Approved Minutes

One of the most important things that an neighborhood council board does at a meeting is approve the minutes of the previous meeting. Approving the minutes shows that the board agrees that the minutes are a correct record of what transpired at the earlier meeting.

Once the minutes are approved, they should be updated to show that they were approved and the date they were approved on. The updated minutes should be published on the neighborhood council website and wherever else your neighborhood council records are kept. Board of Neighborhood Commissioners policy requires this be done within thirty days.1
