The National Society of Leadership and Success is the nation's largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by their college for membership based on academic standing and leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction. With 519 chapters, the Society currently has 667,083 members nationwide. TAMUCC won Chapter of the Year in 2016 out of all of the chapters in the country!

Invitations will be sent out at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. In addition to honorable distinction, the Society provides a step-by-step program for members to build their leadership skills through participation at their campus or online.  Upon completion of the program, members receive their leadership certificate and take their place among the top student leaders at their campus and across the country.  Members are able to list their affiliation on all statements of personal accomplishment, including their resume. 

Membership is for life and provides access to benefits including scholarships and awards, exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment through an online job bank, and discounts on computers, textbooks, grad school prep courses, insurance and much more.

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.
