Board minutes

The Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Governance Institute of Australia have collaborated to explore the most critical issues for boards and have released a joint statement, supported by a barristers’ opinion, to outline our position on these issues.

The statement is available to download below.



These issues were explored in a webcast on 2 August 2019. A recording of this webcast is available here.

The webcast explores:

  • the relevant legal obligations
  • the level of detail that should be included in minutes
  • the status of drafts and notes.


  • Graham Bradley AM FAICD, Non-Executive Director
  • Anna Sandham FGIA, Senior Governance Consultant, Company Matters
  • Douglas Gration FGIA, Barrister


  • Catherine Maxwell FGIA, General Manager, Policy and Advocacy, Governance Institute of Australia
