In fact, the job of a scribe is to be able to take down accurate notes during the meeting.
Normally, they write up the meeting minutes and send them to everyone, which is part of

That does NOT take 3 weeks. I would also suggest if the Board are too busy to provide
input on the minutes of Board business then they need to either reduce their commitments,

to when they accepted their position on the Board and they need to take them seriously.
