Administrative / biographical background:

The South Bucks Conservative Association was formed following the creation of the parliamentary constituency of South Bucks in 1948. By 1951 every polling district in the area had a branch of the Association and in 1950 their candidate Ronald Bell was elected to Parliament, a seat which he held for over 30 years

 

Buckinghamshire parliamentary constituencies were again reorganised in 1972: a new constituency of Amersham and Chesham was carved out of South Bucks and Aylesbury while what remained of South Bucks became the Beaconsfield constituency. The Conservative Association was similarly reorganised and the Beaconsfield Constituency Conservative Association met in January 1972 to elect its new officers.

 

The Executive Council, which included representatives of each branch, met monthly and was the governing body throughout. General business of the Association was dealt with by a Finance and General Purposes Committee appointed by the Executive Council. The Association also had a Women's Advisory Committee and a large and active Young Conservative organisation.
