About the Society ProgramThe National Society of Leadership and Success

Students accept their nomination to become recognized as members of the Society. However, to achieve induction members must attend Orientation, Leadership Training Day, 3 Speaker Broadcasts and 3 Success Networking Team meetings.

ORIENTATION
This is the first event on campus for new members. Students learn the steps of the leadership development program and the schedule of events for the semester.

LEADERSHIP TRAINING DAY
Student members attend an interactive video training session where they identify goals and overcome obstacles. This interactive and introspective seminar helps members identify their true passions and strengths while creating action steps to achieve their goals.

SPEAKER BROADCASTS
Live streamed events with leaders, celebrities and best-selling authors are scheduled six times per year. Topics include leadership, identifying goals, facing challenges, personal growth and successfully transitioning from college to career. Students interact with the speakers via Twitter and Facebook during each broadcast.

SUCCESS NETWORKING TEAMS
Students are assigned to small groups and meet bi-weekly to set goals for future success. Members hold each other accountable using a highly specialized formula proven to produce results. After each meeting, students submit a reflective journal entry online, providing advisors the opportunity to coach and mentor in a format which actively engages students.

INDUCTION
This is the final step towards induction. Most campuses hold a formal induction ceremony which can be shared with family and friends. At this ceremony, students are presented with their Certificate of Leadership Training honoring their achievement and lifetime membership in the Society
