When the board approves the minutes of the annual meeting, do the members need to approve them too?

When minutes of the previous annual meeting are approved by the BOD is it necessay to have the general membership also approve the past minutes?

Dear Salvatore,

The short and brief answer to your question is "no." However, the members can request to have the minutes read. There are times when I can't remember from day to day what I have done, so how can members remember what happened a year ago? That is why minutes of annual meetings are not approved at the next annual meeting. Either a minutes committee or board approves them. But that does not prevent the membership from knowing what happened a year ago. And if someone in the membership actually took notes of the meeting and finds a mistake, that person can make a motion to correct it.

Cheerio and have a great meeting!

Little Ben
