The motions we receive will be put into a Group Conscience Survey ballot and sent out to the membership by January 6, 2013. Voting will occur February thru March 2013. Voting will also be available on-line at this same Internet address.

Those issues receiving a 2/3 vote of support by the ACA meetings/InterGroups will then be considered at the ABC. The issues approved at the ABC may then serve as items for WSO action during the following year.

In clicking Submit, your issue will be submitted to the 2013 ABC Committee and you will receive a copy of your submission by e-mail to the address entered above.
