I suggest the following:

1 - You need to clarify what level of detail your boss wants in these
minutes and what purpose they will serve.
2 - If they want transcription, then a live stenographer or a transcriber
working from tapes should be doing it, not a technical writer.
3 - If you have a laptop, bring it into the meetings and make the high
level notes right then and there. Saves enormous amount of time. I have
even done this in meetings where we could project the minutes as I took
them, people loved that.
4 - During the meeting do not hesitate to speak up when you have a
question about what is an item to include in the summary, whether
something is on topic, who is speaking, to whom something has been
assigned, etc.

Good luck.
