Yes, you absolutely must have a decision log. The main thing is to have someone who is absolutely reliable in charge! If they can't be at a general meeting they have to find someone else to take over. Ours is very simple minded - a three ring notebook. Whenever a formal decision is made it is written down, read back to ensure that everyone knows what they consensed on, and then dated and put in the book. If the decision refers to another document (e.g. a rule about pets, or a budget), that document as presented to the meeting should be filed at the same time. Ideally there would be an index, or perhaps they could be divided into categories. We've managed without such niceities. After three years, we very rarely seem to make formal decisions except for budgets and picking the managing board members and a lot of the concern about what we decided some years ago seems to have evaporated as we have gained more trust in each other. However, the things that do get decided may have legal implications as well as historical interest and you should keep them in order.

It has been suggested that we begin implementing a decision log. We would like suggestions and samples from those of you who are using it with success. We're particularly interested in how it is formatted, what it might look like, and how is it maintained. Please include any other comments also.
