At The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), we build leaders who make a better world. The NSLS is the nation’s largest leadership honor society with over 800 chapters and more than 1.9 million members nationwide. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction, and upon completion of the program members receive their leadership certificate, and use their affiliation to elevate themselves for the rest of their lives. In addition to building leadership skills, benefits also include scholarships & awards, exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment, and discounts on computers, textbooks, car insurance, grad school prep courses, and so much more.



Join us across the country for an incredible 2 days that will inspire, motivate, and equip you with all the tools you need to take your leadership to the next level. Each session is packed with insights and information on key topics surrounding our central theme for 2022: Level Up Your Leadership.

We’ll teach you skills to embrace your fears and break through your limits as you train to become a stronger leader. You’ll hear from speakers on what led to their success, and the struggles they overcame. You’ll get to collaborate and meet new friends in breakout sessions. You’ll discover yourself, learn from each other, and dream together. But most of all, you’ll have fun doing it!
