Meeting Agendas serve the following purposes:
· Provide an outline for the meeting. They can be used as a checklist to ensure that all intended information is discussed.
· Lets attendees know what will be discussed. If the agenda is distributed beforehand, it prepares the attendees for discussion of the meeting’s topics.
· Provides a focus for the meeting (the purpose of the meeting should be clearly stated in the agenda). Meeting Minutes serve to document the outcome and decisions of the meeting, including action items.
