Dear Lucy Leader … Secretary Duties

Dear Lucy Leader,

The secretary of our local LWML group puts too much information in our LWML minutes. Where do I find information on how to have the secretary of my local LWML group write appropriate minutes?  

(P.S. The secretary of my local LWML group is me 😄 !)

Your Friend,
Wordy Wanda

Dear Wordy Wanda,  

The Lord has given you special gifts. He has given you the opportunity to serve Him and the LWML as secretary. In this position, you have the opportunity to assist in having your organization function smoothly so that it can effectively fulfill its purpose statement.

The secretary’s primary responsibility is to keep an accurate record of the proceedings at all meetings of the organization. Your question as to what to include in these records/minutes is a good one. You can find guidelines to help you with this at

May these guidelines help you serve efficiently, confidently, and above all, with love and joy of the Savior so that others may know our God and His love.  

Lucy Leader
