There is also, of course, the fact that we check the minutes before
approving them, they have a draft process and AJ is careful to make sure
they are a true representation (as are we all).

notes aren't. they're notes - and we don't want inaccurate data going
out. "notes from committee meeting" sounds too official, and there's a
danger of misunderstanding.

it's all about being overly safe and cautious and all that stuff.
