Sigma Alpha Pi
THE NATIONAL SOCIETY OF LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESS? The NSLS is the nation's largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by their college for membership based on either academic standing or leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction.
The National Society of Leadership & Success, Sigma Alpha Pi, is a nationwide community that dramatically improves one's ability to successfully attain desired outcomes. Sigma Alpha Pi stands for success, action, and purpose. The society provides a curriculum to guide top-performing students through the process of identifying and committing to focused and dedicated actions that lead to their personal success and achievement of goals. The Online chapter of the National Society of Leadership & Success was established to provide elite Wayland's (Lockridge & Augustine) students from all disciplines the opportunity to develop student leadership skills. It accomplishes this through networking groups, leadership training, goal setting meetings, and speaker series events.
Through the course of a year students are taken through a leadership curriculum that includes:
Orientation Day – an event to introduce the society, discuss society benefits, inform students of the curriculum schedule, and provide a networking opportunity
Leadership Training Day – an event in which students are trained in leadership and success skills via an introspective and interactive training session in which students create a vision and action plan to achieve their goals and dreams
Speaker Events – the chapter hosts live speakers from top corporations and organizations as well as access to other live broadcasts through the society’s online portal – 3 events at minimum must be completed
Success Networking Meetings – students meet in groups for a minimum of 3 focused meetings for peer to peer leadership development to help set and achieve desired goals – 3 events at minimum must be completed
Induction – upon completion of these requirements there is a formal induction and awards ceremony which formally inducts students into the society
