Consider the minutes to be a log of updates, not a transcript of exactly what was said. During the meeting, if there’s a new action to be taken, why not write it directly onto your actions list. Updating a risk? That’s right, update the risk register itself directly.
Make a note in the committee minutes of the reference numbers of each update and paste in the changes. Add a brief overview to give context on the subject and move on. Committee time is precious, keep them focused on decision making!
If you can, provide links to each action, risk and control within your minutes wherever they’re stored even if it is from a word document to a table in an excel spreadsheet. Ideally, all of these records would be stored on the same system, making both content generation on the fly and references between them far simpler to maintain. It makes tracking your way back to decisions made far easier while the audit is being undertaken. That way you, can start with the specific action, risk or control and link back to the committee minutes, rather than vice versa.
