National Society of Leadership and Success

National Society of Leadership and Success

The National Society of Leadership and Success, or Sigma Alpha Pi, is a lifetime membership honor society whose membership is based on academic standing and leadership potential. The society was founded in 2001 and has amassed 482,009 members divided into 479 chapters at colleges around the nation.

Sigma Alpha Pi got its start on the Texas A&M University-Commerce campus in 2012 and has quickly become the largest organization on campus. Chances are that you’ve come across students involved in Sigma Alpha Pi as they are encouraged to assist with events hosted by the university such as multi-cultural shows, Lions Leap and Career Development events. The hard work and dedication exhibited by the students involved in the society led to the organization winning New Student Organization of the Year in 2013.

Even if the organization is unfamiliar to you, their most notable event should not be. The society sponsors a six-event Speaker Broadcast series which brings some of the world’s top presenters via video stream to the campus of A&M-Commerce. Past speakers have included best-selling authors Brad Meltzer, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.  Students of A&M Commerce have also had the opportunity to listen to presentations from on air personality Dan Harris, ex-NBA player turned ESPN announcer Stephen Bardo, Mrs. Fields Cookies’ creator Debbi Fields, and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, thanks to the National Society of Leadership and Success.

Sigma Alpha Pi’s next Speaker Broadcast, which takes place on October 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Ferguson Auditorium, will give students the opportunity to hear Al Roker’s journey to success.

    I am in my junior year and still amazed and unsure as to how I got the invite into NSLS. With that being said, my question pertains to community service. I understand we are required to complete a certain amount of hours; however, does that have to be done through NSLS or cant it be through another organization? I am a veterans advocate for a nonprofit organization called Honor Courage Commitment, Inc., as well as a program they run called 22KILL. Additional I on the board for White Star Mothers of America which is also funded and ran through HCC. We do community service almost every weekend and that is where I devote the majority of my time. We help veterans with remodeling their homes, building ADA accessible ramps, as well as cleaning up the communities. In fact, we have an event called Freedom Day on 9/11/15 were we will spend all day and evening cleaning up the Dallas Hourse Park, building new stalls, bleachers and clearing horse riding trails. Can I count some of those hours towards the hours needed for NSLS or do I need to do community service through NSLS? Thank you for your help and clarification.
