How to use this template

This formal meeting agenda template will guide you through the standard, specific agenda and procedure that formal meetings usually follow. It begins with a call to order, which signals the beginning of the meeting. The minutes take should, at that time, note all participants in attendance.

The first order of business in a formal meeting is to approve the minutes of the previous meeting (if there was one). Going over the meetings previous minutes helps remind all attendees of past decisions, and any open issues that may need to be revisited.
