Past Chairpersons

For the first few years, Chairmen of P&T served for two-year terms.  However, following the unfortunate demise of Michael Brooks in 1984, whilst Chairman, subsequent Chairmen have served one-year terms, with the exception of Paul Cackett in 1998 and 1999, who oversaw major changes in the administration of the Club and the fledgling regional branches. Since 2010 the Chairman has again served for a period of two years to build greater continuity of management.
