This is a good record in general, but I suggest they ought to do more to record decisions and conclusions and less to record discussions and opinions. In particular I'm not sure on the value of recording the views expressed by each individual in a discussion, unless they specifically request it.

Article 24 seems to give a good guide for the content of minutes (my emphasis added):

24. The Directors must keep minutes of all:

... (c) meetings of the Directors and committees of Directors including:
(i) the names of the Directors present at the meeting;
(ii) the decisions made at the meetings; and
(iii) where appropriate the reasons for the decisions. 20:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Do you believe some decisions have not been recorded? If so, which ones? It is probably just an oversight. While details of individual comments may not strictly be necessary, they are interesting and allow members to better understand and scrutinise the work of the Board. They could be particularly useful if current board members stand for re-election - members will know what they've said in meetings and can use that information to help them decide how to vote. --Tango 00:11, 29 November 2011 (UTC) raises a good point - next time I keep minutes, I'll focus a little more on the decisions made.
