Article Summary: 

This article discusses the differences between Annual General Meetings (AGMs) and other owners' meetings in condominiums. AGMs are held annually to discuss important business items such as approving minutes, presenting financial statements, appointing an auditor, and electing directors. Other types of meetings include Special General Meetings for specific purposes and Town Hall or Information meetings for status updates and feedback. The article explains why minutes are required for these meetings and the importance of selecting a professional, unbiased minute-taker. AGMs are held in more public settings, and the meeting chair plays a critical role in running an efficient and formal meeting. Minute-takers for owner meetings require specialized expertise to capture discussions and queries accurately. The article also addresses the challenges faced by minute-takers, including handling difficult behaviors and maintaining decorum during the meeting.
