Hi, everyone.

Can somebody please tell me what īs the difference between the minutes of a meeting and the proceedings of a meeting? I īve looked up in the dictionary and the definition seems quite the same.

Proceedings - a complete written record of what is said or done during a meeting.

Minutes -
the written record of what was said at a meeting.

Thanks a lot!
