Memcons - Memoranda of Conversation


Memoranda of Conversation or “memcons” are the written record of face-to-face meetings between the President or Vice President and heads of state or foreign officials. Because presidential meetings are not recorded, memcons are not verbatim transcripts. A team of note takers are present at head of state meetings to ensure that the final memo is as accurate as possible. Memcons not only serve as a reminder to the President and his staff of what was agreed upon in the meeting, but they also document foreign relations during the administration.
