National Society of Leadership and Success


The National Society of Leadership and Success is a national leadership honor society that was introduced to the SUNY Cortland campus in the spring 2015 semester. The Society has chapters at over 700 universities across the country.

The organization's mission is "to build leaders who make a better world".  Regional chapters allow members to experience hands-on, personalized leadership development as well as access to networking opportunities with their peers around the globe.

Students who are invited to join can complete an online application form and pay a one-time registration fee. To achieve induction, students are then expected to attend a series of training sessions which takes approximately 10 hours to complete.

The four stages to induction include:

  1. Orientation
  2. Leadership Training Day
  3. Speaker Broadcast Events featuring webcasts of some of the world's most successful motivational speakers
  4. Three Success Networking Team Meetings
