Past Presidents

These brilliant men and women have shown tremendous leadership and support for both our industry and our organisation over more than 30 years. Our Presidential system starts with a Junior Vice President, a Vice President, a President and an Immediate Past President. Our members in these roles move up into the next each December, until their tenure is complete one year after their Presidential year. To start the path on the way to greatness, the member must be nominated and then elected and becomes ‘the chosen one’ by Operating Board approval.
