I have an meting agenda mindmap in MindManager format - if you use that software I will gladly share it with you.

If you don't use Mindmanager you could download a 30 day trial or the viewer from www.mindjet.com.

If you use MS Word, there are a bunch of decent templates on their Microsoft Office Online (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/CT101172311033.aspx?av=ZWD000) site.

I have a bunch, if you're interested. Here are a few:
From "Organize Your Work Day In No Time":
o don't plan a meeting without being clear about why you need to meet
o always have an agenda for every meeting
o consider assigning roles in each meeting, and encourage everyone to participate
o create standard meeting guidelines to ensure effective participation
o don't let your action items get lost in your meeting notes: add them to your own task list
o bring your laptop to meetings and take meeting notes electronically
Nail Meetings Down Tight
And of course: Five weeeeeeeeird tips for great meetings
1: Open the meeting with a positive round
2: Interrupt the meeting regularly
3: Lose the table
4: Get the body in there
5: Use strategically placed silence
Hope that helps!
