All of the above is good; a good place to start, especially for the type of meeting you outline above, is to commit to three hours of work for every hour of the meeting: one for prep, one for the meeting, one for the follow-up.

Great ideas! A great timesaver is the tip about reading through the agenda before the meeting and copying/pasting into your minutes template (which I hope you already have). Also I review my notes and send the minutes out the same day or day after from the meeting while it is fresh in my kind and the minds of those who attended.

Bill, thanks for pointing out the time commitment meetings require.

Hi, Jennifer. You are smart to send meeting notes out within 24 hours. I bet your coworkers are grateful and impressed!
