    "published" minutes

    Please provide your opinion on this because I know I will see this brought up again in my organization: I made a motion to remove a sentence from the minutes and use RONR 10th edition (the edition they use per bylaws) and stated among other reasons that minutes contain a record of what was done at the meeting, not what was said by the members. p 451 l. 27-29 and therefore want some (inflamatory) words that were said to be removed from the minutes. On this point the counter argument is to say that if minutes are "published" they can keep it in and they quote "In an ordinary society, unless the minutes are to be published, they should contain mainly a record of what was done at the meeting, not what was said...." RONR (10th ed) p 451 lines 25-28 Question (1) Does the word "published" in RONR 10th ed on p 451 refer to that which is distributed to the public at large for distribution (as for governmental bodies)? Question (2 ) Or does "published" in RONR refer to anything a society (one with rules for membership) decides to print up and give their members? My thinking is "published" as used by RONR does NOT mean anything and everything once printed up and sent to members, no matter how many members, is "published" ; but that instead "published" in RONR is a term that refers to making records available to the general public (through for example distributing it via notices in newspapers and not restricting nonmember access to records/minutes as per their state law) I have the 11th edition, but the nonprofit corporation in this matter uses RONR 10th edition. (thankfully the words were removed, but I need other viewpoints since this is going to come up again at future meetings when they want to keep in objectionable sentences or words)
