Ticktocker Advisors

In an effort to communicate more effectively with our younger members, gain valuable insights, and provide them a voice in organizational matters, we have established a Ticktocker Advisory Council. The twelve young women appointed to the council were selected from across the nation following an interview process. All have been actively involved in their local NCL Chapters as Ticktockers.
