Note: 1.The person holding the premier post was known as the Chairman from 1945-73, but from 1973-74 onwards has been officially called the President. 2.The deputy to the Chairman was not named in the minutes until 1984-85. However, from 1948-49 the retiring Chairman was designated as Deputy Chairman. From 1985-86 the post was retitled the Vice-President, and it has largely remained so, despite the Constitution of 1993 stating that this official should be called Deputy President. In 1988-89, the league decided that the President should spend the two years prior to the Presidency holding the position of Deputy.
