Is it already time for this question again?

I've never had to do it as a main function, but I do have to take minutes in our staff meetings - once every two months. We have a rotation system were everybody (including the manager) takes turns. The only other time I've had to do the minutes was on a team that I was the "facilitator" of (they don't use the term "lead" in reference to meetings here), which seems to pretty much be the de facto standard.

There is actually quite a bit of theory about the inherent power in taking meeting minutes, and the archives of this list should turn up several previous discussions on this topic.

I am wondering how many other technical writers have been required to take
minutes in meetings (as their main function) and what was the level of
detail that you were expected to produce in your minutes document?
