I've put the minute book and some spare copies ofthe agenda on the table.
I'd like you to chair the meeting.
I have a PowerPoint presentation on my laptop.
I've adjusted the projector.
Do I need to take the minutes?
Should I type out the minutes from the notes?
Shall we translate those materials for the foreign participants?
Will Mr. Black have the floor on the main item of the agenda?
I'll send the notification of the meeting by mail.
l'd like to call the meeting to order.
Is the room ready for the meeting. Liz?
Yes, I've put the minute book and some spare copies of the agenda on the table.
And paper and pencils have been laid by their name cards on the conference table for eachattendant.
Thank you. How about the microphone and speakers?
They're ready for the meeting.
Good. I've come to tell you that you'll have to take the minutes this afternoon.
Should I write down every word that everyone says?
No, you needn't. That's very difficult and hardly ever necessary. You just make a note of thetopics that are discussed and the result of the discussion.
And should I type out the minutes from the notes?
Yes, of course.
