minutes of meeting

Can minutes of a meeting contain information that was not discussed at the meeting? I have a situation where minutes were altered before the meeting to include explanation of a certain topic. Since this explanation was not included in the person's report, how can it be in the minutes?

The minutes are a record of what was done, not what was said, at a meeting. So the minutes can indicate that a report was presented but they should not include the report itself, nor any discussion about the report.

Certainly minutes can not be altered before a meeting (unless you mean before the meeting at which they were approved).

No.

(Hey, that was an easy question!) :)

To be a stickler, no commentary, no opinion, is to be included in one's minutes.

So if this text is pure expository, then it has no place being in the minutes, short of an adopted motion saying otherwise.
