An organization on the international level will have as its goal the coordination of these efforts and the communication of their results,” the Superior General and his Council instituted an international organism called: International Secretariat of Vincentian Studies (S.I.E.V.)

It will be possible to do much preparatory work for meetings.

For example...

In preparation for a meeting in which the members would like to produce a document entitled "SIEV - Our Mission Today" a page could be created which anyone who is registered may use.

A click on the above link would take people to the page where "documentum laboris' could be posted for comment.. Then people could colaboratively edit this document.


This is the page that could be used by memebers of the team to collaborate in preparation for meetings.
