^ The Association was represented on the BRL from 1926 until suspended on 22/06/27. Representation was reinstated in 1931 and was represented until 1980 when a major reorganisation of the league was made. Representation to the QRL South-East Division was provided after a further reorganising of all leagues by QRL in 1993. From 2001, the Chair of the South East Division Referees’ Board holds a seat on the QRL South East Division Board.
# From 2001, a new board, the South East Division Referees Board was established. J McLeod occupied the position of chairman of the board with D Stubbins occupying the position in 2002-04. This board formerly comprised of members of both the BRLRA and the BRLJDRA. Since 2005 the President now represents the association.
