Hi everyone. I came across this information about Voting Entity Issues (VEIs) in the FSM (Fellowship Service Manual). It was approved at CSC (CoDa Service Conference) at least 5 years ago, possibly more. Both are in Section 10 of the current FSM.

 Voting Entity Issues (VEIs) are those issues that are formed as a result of a group conscience process at the Voting Entity level. They are not submitted in Motion form since they are usually assigned either to the Board or to a Committee for further action. (Found In Definitions)

Those VEIs that are received at least 30 days before CSC will be assigned at CSC. VEIs that come in after that, and during the rest of the year, will be assigned whenever they come in. Whoever has been assigned a VEI will report their responses to the Board, to the VE who initiated the issue and to the Fellowship. Any decisions that require motions will be submitted in time for voting at the next CSC. (Found In Guidelines for Submitting Documents for CSC)
