Minutes Should Not Take Hours

February 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Minutes Should Not Take Hours!

One of my earliest parliamentary lessons was that minutes should be like a women’s skirt: long enough to cover the essentials, but short enough to keep things interesting! Learn how to take complete minutes and have them approved efficiently and effectively. You will learn what should be included in the minutes (and how to state it!) and what need not be included in the minutes.


You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: Feb 28, 2021 03:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.








Kay Allison Crews, CPP, PRP

Kay Crews is a professional parliamentarian and presiding officer working out of Texas. She is the immediate past president of the American Institute of Parliamentarians, and teaches parliamentary procedure professionally as Instructor for the Introduction to Parliamentary Procedure: Dynamics of Leadership course offered by the University of Wisconsin Independent Learning department. She also teaches classes across the country for many organizations.

Kay was named the 2011 Parliamentarian of the Year by the Texas State Association of Parliamentarians, before becoming president of that organization in 2013. She holds professional credentials – the Certified Professional Parliamentarian from the American Institute of Parliamentarians and the Professional Registered Parliamentarian from the National Association of Parliamentarians. Fewer than 50 people hold that dual credential.

Kay is routinely hired as a parliamentarian, but she also provides services as a professional presiding officer, recording secretary, and teller. Outside of meetings, she provides parliamentary opinions, script-writing and bylaws-writing services.

Kay has programs available to offer to your organization, whether at a board meeting or as a break-out session at your next annual meeting. Her humor and common-sense approach to parliamentary problems make her a sought-after resource.
