Why was I invited to join the society?
You were recognized as a student of excellence based on GPA. Our chapter is here to help you remain successful and to further encourage growth.
Are there any costs?
Society members pay a one-time registration fee of $85 when applying to join the organization. The fee includes all membership benefits, partner discounts and a lifetime membership. This will make you a pre-inducted member. Once you are ready to begin with our campus chapter, we accept donations in any amount for the academic year during your induction completion phase. This earns you member points as well as helps fund all of our events and accommodations for our members.
After completing my online registration, what comes next?
You come to our Cal Poly Pomona chapter events and meet your fellow members! We will guide you step by step through the induction process (detailed below) and then we will present you with your induction package and celebrate your achievement at our annual spring ceremony.
HOW DO I BECOME AN INDUCTED MEMBER FOR THE CAL POLY POMONA CHAPTER?
The steps that you need to complete to be officially inducted into the Society of Leadership are:
Orientation is the first meeting that occurs each quarter and will give you access to all the information you need about the program in order to successfully complete the steps for induction as a member.
Leadership Training Day is a 2-hour interactive video training session with a workbook designed to help you identify and overcome any obstacles that may interfere with obtaining your goals. This introspective seminar helps you to recognize your strengths and weaknesses, in order to shift your focus toward your real passions.
At the Speaker Events you will watch some of the world's most successful motivational speakers discussing topics related to leadership, identifying goals, facing challenges, personal growth, and successfully transitioning from college to career.
The Success Networking Team meetings bring together groups of students that work together and provide peer coaching on achieving goals. You can discuss goals, desires and expectations, set timelines and hold each other accountable for achieving what you want. The Success Networking Team provides members with a support network of like-minded goal-oriented students on campus.
What is the induction package?
Once you have completed all of your induction steps, we award you a certificate for achievement, a society t-shirt, a society pin, and a car decal. This will be presented to you at our induction ceremony to celebrate your hard work! You can also buy an additional plaque to accentuate your certificate as well as other a variety of society accessories at our national store online. Stoles can be purchased or earned through chapter leadership involvement.
How long is the induction process?
We are all busy students and understand that flexibility differs between everyone. For that reason, we offer all of our induction steps at least twice a quarter between Fall quarter-Spring Quarter. As a chapter member, you are free to complete the process over your own preferred time span but most members find they can complete it all in a quarter or within a year. Be sure to view our calendar to see what event you can attend next!
What are the some of the benefits of inducting into the society?
When you join some organizations, the information you receive focuses on the material, tangible benefits you receive from membership. A t-shirt, certificate and other goods are nice side benefits, but are definitely not the real value you gain from achieving membership in The National Society of Leadership and Success.
The intangibles that you gain from membership will drive your future and establish you as a leader among your peers, and include: improved self-esteem, peer leadership skills, sustainable motivation and drive, paradigms that will help you discover and achieve your dreams, real world skills that will help you outperform your peers in the workplace, and an enviable network of movers and shakers that are all a part of the drive to create lasting positive change in the world.
I noticed the title "Sigma Alpha Pi" for the chapter. Is the society a fraternity?
No, we have greek letters because we are a nationally recognized honors society.
How do I find the society scholarships and awards?
