The Rhodia Meeting Book

Karen

The Rhodia Meeting Book is a unique notebook. rhodia book

The design was created by the CEO of Clairefontaine Rhodia, Jean-Marie Nusse, to help him keep track of decisions and plans–and the discussion behind them–from all his meetings.  The pages are pre-printed with Date, Notes + Action.  They are both a record and working document.

In my position as board secretary for East End Lighthouses, I have shifted over from a standard Rhodia pad to the Meeting Book to take notes for Board minutes. It does help me keep track of all the various inquiries, requests and projects different board members have volunteered to take on and complete by the next meeting.

One person who tried and liked the Meeting Book described it to me in this way:  “My life is all about meeting lately, and having the notes at hand with action items organized is really critical. ”

“I like that it stays flat,” she said, “or I can fold it over on the binding to save room on the table, if necessary.  I really appreciate how the notes and action items are separated so that your action items stand out at a glance and you don’t have to read back through all your notes to find those critical items.”

How do you take notes at meetings or client appointments?  Are paper notebooks still preferable to a laptop, mini laptop,  Netbook, or other electronic device?

  1. B Irwin: I have used ALL of my fountain pens in the Meeting Book with no problem. I totally prefer my Estie J with PR Lake Placid Blue as my main meeting pen, to go along with my main Meeting Book!

  3. The 80g paper used in all of the Rhodia products (with the exception of the 80g France made Webnotebook) is very fountain pen friendly. I myself actually prefer it to the 90g Clairefontaine. – Stephanie

  5. Thank you, Stephanie. If my fountain pens won’t love the paper, it doesn’t matter how good a system it is.

    I’m content to be in the minority of users, just want to know in advance what sort of paper is in it.

    Looks like I’ll be sticking to the webbies.

  7. All Rhodia products with the exception of the Webnotebook are 80g. The US made Webbie is 90g. The France made Webbie is 80g and is not the same as the regular white Rhodia paper and for whatever reason, isn’t fountain pen friendly. I myself never tested it. – Stephanie
