no evidence of corrections to minutes

Recommended Posts

When we take a look at the minutes to be approved at the beginning of our meetings, we make such occasional corrections related to punctuation, spelling of names, etc..  Our minutes will then typically reflect that the previous minutes were "approved as amended."  In this case, must evidence of the particular corrections be noted?  Thank you ahead of time for any insights!

RONR (11th ed.), p. 460, ll. 13-17:  "Any member has a right to examine [the minutes] ...at a reasonable time and place, but this privilege must not be abused to the annoyance of the secretary."

"Any correction approved by the assembly is made in the text of the minutes being approved; the minutes of the meeting making the correction merely state that the minutes were approved 'as corrected,' without specifying what the correction was (see form, p. 472, ll. 8–9)."   (RONR, 11th ed., p. 469)
