I do something like this myself.

My company has a weekly sit-down status meeting with the founders and VPs.

I was asked to sit in and take the minutes, which I compile and then distribute amongst the attendees.

Being with the company's heavy hitters is a bit daunting, but I've gotten advance word on projects that I immediately volunteered for, so it's been worth it for me.

Subject: Meeting minutes for an HR project

Hi all,

I've read some of the previous threads regarding meeting minutes and found the information (and the complimentary TechWhirl template) quite useful.
I've been asked to record minutes for a new project one of our VPs has initiated. Basically, VP wants to sit down for lunch with a handful of non-management employees to get their opinions about the business. VP wants me to take note of "important things," which I translate to meeting minutes.

My question to you all is this: do you have any advice for taking and organizing minutes during an unstructured "meet and greet" type meeting such as this one. I want to be able to deliver my VP a MEMO or similarly formal document with action items from this meeting.

I should also mention that this is the first time the VP has asked for my help with something, and I want to take advantage of the opportunity. The way I see it, anybody can take minutes, but a tech writer should be able to take minutes with style ;)
