    1. There should a minimum of 2 case study studies about the project (either positive of or negative).
    2. It is mandatory for all the leaders to attend the meeting.
    3. Meeting timings had have changed to and now run from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my amendments above in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Wrong in the vocabulary?

    Welcome to the forums.
    I'm not sure what the case studies have to do with the rest of it.

    Here is how I would write this

    Thank you for attending the meeting on [subject] today.

    As a reminder, we agreed on the following:
    * The meeting is mandatory for all leaders [NOTE: I assume that "leaders" is the right term, not "project managers" or "sub-team leaders" or whatever.]
    * The new meeting time is 7–8 p.m.
    * Anyone arriving between 7 and 7:05 will be fined [add how much]
    * Anyone arrriving after 7:05 will not be admitted. [Is there a fine for this too? If not, I'll skip the meeting and the fine rather than be a minute late.]
    * Everyone is to bring at least two case studies (either positive or negative) about the project


    Next time, please give your thread a title like "Meeting notes" or something. Your title was vocabulary, but your question was about grammar.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
