The one who conducts the Protocol of the meetingshould be aware of all the decisions of previous meetings to understand the logic of decisions. If you are conducting the Protocol at the meeting, take a copy of the Protocols a few previous meetings. At the meeting immediately fix the issues included on the agenda.
In front of each issue on the agenda, write down all the ideas expressed during the meeting. This can be done briefly, because the Protocol will be finally issued not in the course of the meeting, and after it. The meaning of these records is that you don't miss any important views. Also write down the names of those who vote, to remember who said what and on what subject. From the statements of record only facts, not personal opinions or assumptions.
