Our Members

The NCL Experience enables mothers and daughters to know the joy of helping others, learn leadership skills, make life-long friends and participate in meaningful activities, while bonding and growing together.  More than 56,000 National Charity League, Inc. members in over 200 Chapters across the nation are actively involved in the NCL program, supporting the needs of their local communities. The women, called Patronesses, and their daughters in grades 7-12, called Ticktockers, are committed to the Mission and Vision of NCL and believe in the organization’s Core Values. Following their years of Active membership, members are invited to become Sustainers so they may continue their affiliation with NCL and share their NCL Experience with others.
