Who is responsible for signing minutes?

I know that the secretary is responsible for taking minutes of meetings and for distributing them to members for additions and corrections. However, once minutes have been approved, which officer is responsible for certifying the minutes by attaching his/her signature. Is it the secretary or the president?

The person who submits the draft minutes for approval signs the submission. The person serving as secretary when the minutes are approved initials them as approved. The president can initial them as well. But they're official when they're approved, initials or no.

And, although it's a common practice to distribute the draft to all members prior to the meeting at which they'll be approved, it's not a requirement.
