ISCA Member Survey on Board ChairTenure
73 ISCA members responded to our recent survey inquiring about board chair tenure.
While we will continue to analyze the data from this survey, I wanted to share some quick takeaways:
More than a third of boards (34.2%) do not define in their bylaws how long board chairs can serve in their role. I was surprised this number was so high. It would be an advised practice to describe the length of service for board chairs in your bylaws even if that is flexible or unlimited.
