Some of the past Presidents have been Lloyd Barker, Stanton Parris, Andrew Corbin, Mervyn Jones and Vincent Bullen. Some of these gentlemen still serve on the Executive of the BCUA.
The current President is Gregory Brathwaite who is currently a member of the International Panel of ICC Umpires (IPU).
