Tenure Results for Respondents' Immediately Previous Positions
The second approach to the analysis involved examining the results to Question
11 through Question 17 which were concentrated on the immediately previous positions
held by the individuals. This approach was deemed desirable since the true length of
tenure in those positions could be determined. For the second approach to this study,
only the 64 survey respondents who indicated that they had also held the position of
president in their previous positions were included in the analysis. Of those only 61
listed the selection process used in their immediately previous presidency. Where
controlling for those who were previously presidents, the mean number of years in their
previous presidency was 6.5 years with a median of 5 years. The approximate mean
for all survey respondents in their current positions (assigning a longevity value of 0.5
years for those with less than one year in their presidency) was 5.5 years while the
median was only 2 years for all current positions. See Table 13 for these results.
