The Approval of Corporate Minutes form can come in handy to obtain approval of the past minutes of real meetings. For example, prior to holding annual shareholders and directors meetings, you may wish to send the minutes of previous meetings to directors or shareholders to read before the meeting. Instead of waiting for the next meeting to approve these minutes, you may wish to ask them to sign an approval form--assuming, of course, they do not have corrections or additions to make. Doing this can save time at the meeting, as well as provide a signed document showing that the directors or shareholders specifically approved actions taken at a prior meeting. Especially if a director or shareholder missed a previous meeting, it is a good idea to make a written record of their signed approval to important decisions reached at that earlier meeting.
