vi. Your approach to developing your action plan, including how you decided who should be responsible for which tasks and timeframes for task completion.
vii. The implementation of your action plan; if all required tasks were completed, if they were completed by the person responsible, if they were completed on time and, if not, what you did to make sure they were done.

iii. How you would assess your performance in chairing the meeting (i.e. were you an effective chairperson or are improvements needed?); how well your meeting participants worked together and what group dynamics you needed to manage.
iv. The desired outcomes of your meeting, if you achieved them, and the strategies you used to facilitate the outcome. If outcomes were not achieved, or not achieved to satisfactory standards, what you could do to improve in facilitating outcomes.
v. The strategies you used to review the meeting minutes to ensure the information presented a true and accurate record of the discussions that occurred during the meeting. If the minutes were a complete and accurate reflection of the discussions and what, if any, adjustments you made.
