About the National leadership council

The National Leadership Council (NLC) is an advisory board comprised of selected NSCS members that advises the NSCS Board of Directors and national staff. For the 2017-2018 term, selected NSCS members will to serve on the NLC from May 2017 to June 2018. NLC members are chosen based on their dedication, service, and commitment to NSCS. Ideal candidates exhibit leadership, academic excellence, and community involvement throughout their academic career and continue to demonstrate these skills while serving on the NLC. Two members of the NLC will be selected to serve a one-year term on the NSCS Board of Directors as the President and Vice President of the NLC. These members will be chosen by the current 2016-2017 NLC President and Vice President in conjunction with the national office.

The NLC collects feedback from chapters to improve the NSCS experience for all members, and NLC members speak at their chapter’s New Member Induction Ceremony held in the fall. NLC members serve as peer resources to chapter officers and NSCS’ member engagement team. The NLC also engages members through the NLC’s Facebook Page; creates fun videos to help promote national NSCS programs (Induction, Integrity Week, PACE); participates in monthly conference calls with fellow NLC members and NLC Advisor; and provides feedback on member benefits. It also provides general feedback regarding best practices for connecting with NSCS members.

Serving on this prestigious advisory board gives each member valuable experience working with a national program and an incredible chance to contribute to the mission and overall success of NSCS.
