The National Society of Leadership and Success (ΣΑΠ) is a collegiate organization that focuses on goal fulfillment, community involvement and leadership. Their stated mission is "We Build Leaders Who Make a Better World".[1]


The National Society of Leadership and Success was founded in 2001 by Gary Tuerack. Tuerack wanted to create an organization where students could come together to learn from and support each other.[2]


The Society has expanded from a handful of chapters to tens of thousands of students at more than 388 college chapters around the country.[citation needed] Local chapters offer students in-person leadership development and peer-to-peer networking.

Each Society member must complete a training program that prepares them for leadership in the academic arena, as well as the workplace.[3]

Selection Criteria[edit]

Any college student in a school that has both an official charter and an up-to-date affiliation with the national office of the Society is eligible for consideration for membership. The Society council establishes the national standards for every chapter. Local chapters create their own bylaws that must comply with the Society’s national constitution.

All membership selection is handled through the local school chapter. Most chapters choose to invite students to join the Society, based upon either academic standing, identified leadership potential or class. However, successful leaders are not limited to just those individuals that achieve the highest GPAs, and so the Society has a nomination process for students that do not receive a personal invitation.

To be inducted into the Society, students must complete four steps. Students must attend chapter orientation, complete Leadership Training Day, participate in Success Networking Team meetings, and attend Speaker Events.[4]

Speaker Series[edit]

Society programming includes a speaker series via live interactive Web broadcast (or streaming video online available after the event) six times per year. Past presenters have included honorary members: Rudy Giuliani, Vernice "FlyFirl" Armour, Hilary Duff, Hill Harper, Brad Meltzer, Peter Bergman, and Common.[5]
