Meeting Roles

Here are some examples of common roles that people take in a meeting situation:

Meeting chair/facilitator This person must keep the conversation moving and on the right topics, ensure that everyone is having their say and summarise the current line of thinking and action.

Record/note-keeper This person is responsible for writing the meeting notes and recording the actions for the next meeting.

Time-keeper This person keeps an eye on the time and reminds people about the remaining items on the agenda if the group spends too long discussing something.

Team Liaison/Task Manager This person is responsible for checking with everyone to ensure that progress is being made with their actions. This person also takes the lead in liaison with the tutor and/or other stakeholders.
