certificates of appointment as a delegate or proxy forms submitted by BC Hockey members;
voting cards, which are presented to general meeting delegates and are the sole means by which voting is to occur; and
eligibility of BC Hockey members to be represented at and to have their delegates or proxies participate in and vote at a general meeting.

Members shall support their position with respect to any matters to be determined by the Credentials Committee Work Group with written documentation.
