    Proper grammar when writing minutes
    When I am writing the minutes for unit meetings, do I address my comments in the first person or use my name?

    I'm sorry that no one has come along yet to address your question! I'm no expert on this, but I have been the secretary a number of times for a couple of different groups with which I have been involved.

    When you are writing minutes, you are reporting what happened at the meeting, what was decided and what might happen. As such, you would use the name of the person who said something, made a motion or whatever. You just report what happened and who did this or that. If it was you who said something or suggested some sort of action be taken, then you would list your name and maybe your position as say, maybe secretary? And what you did and/or what happened.

    You write about the things that you observed and happened at the meeting, even though you are experiencing them in the here and now when things were being said or done as you are taking down the notes for what you will later develop and distribute, catalog and/or report for the minutes of the previous meeting at the next meeting.
