If you own or are part of a corporation with shareholders, the chances are pretty good that you have meetings where the shareholders are brought together periodically to make decisions for the company/organization. The decisions and information discussed during any of these specific shareholders meetings are important and should be recorded as Shareholders’ Meeting Minutes. 

Think of Shareholders’ Meeting Minutes as what they are - notes taken during a meeting so they can be saved and filed for future reference. Corporations are actually required by law to have Meeting Minutes on file of any meeting that takes place.
