Telcons - Memoranda of Telephone Conversation


Memoranda of Telephone Conversation or “telcons” are the written record of those meetings which occur by phone. Because presidential phone calls are not recorded, telcons are not verbatim transcripts. White House Situation Room Duty Officers and National Security Council staff listen in on foreign leader calls and combine their notes to produce the final telcon. Telcons 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.
