Can someone volunteer to take minutes today?

In the meeting, a chairman said: ''let's get straight to the items on the agenda, can someone volunteer to take minutes today?" and one man said: ''I'll take the minutes". what does the sentence in bold mean?
thanks in advance!

    From the WR dictionary: minute: minute3: 1 (minutes) a summarized record of the points discussed at a meeting.

    The chairman is asking someone to perform this task -- to write down everything that was discussed in the meeting and what was decided, i.e. the minutes.

    Added: I would have thought we would have threads on this top -- and even listed some here. But then I checked them and they did answer this particular question too well.
