Thanks for the answer Candy but I still have a hard time understanding why you wouldn't want a legit record of what happens in these sessions. Sensitive records are stored all the time by big and small companies without a problem.
As Tony Stone always used to remind me there are three sides to every story. Yours, mine, and the truth. A recording can cut right to the truth if there is a disagreement at a later date.
And for the record, Executive Session was a rare thing in my day saved only for very serious matters.
