Part of a Delaware corporation’s internal formalities include the annual meetings and minutes. These minutes and meeting are not provided to the Delaware Division of Corporations and are not part of the public record. They’re typically kept on file internally within the Corporate kit we provide in our Standard package. Whenever a meeting is held, written minutes are created documenting the actions taken at the meeting.
Not sure how to take corporate minutes? The written minutes should include at least the following information:
The name of the company
Generally, the secretary will prepare minutes within a few days of a meeting and distribute copies before the next meeting so they can be reviewed.
Feel free to reach out to us with any questions about your minutes and meetings for your Delaware corporation.

Is it mandatory for a corporation registered in Delware to maintain minutes of its Board and shareholders meetings ? Or can the company just maintain signed resolutions in its file ? Please adviceHBS Staff replied: Monday, November 26, 2018
Lakshmi, typically corporations record the minutes of the meetings for the Board of Directors and Shareholders, but this information is not filed with Delaware and not part of the public record. The resolutions are also kept on file internally in the company as well.
