Conejo Valley

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Conejo Valley Chapter is a group of mothers and daughters who have come together in a commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
Members shall reside in the geographical jurisdictions of Agoura High School and the Oak Park School District on the east, the Conejo Valley Unified School District on the west, Royal High School on the north, and Moorpark Unified School District on the northwest. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Conejo Valley aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

Our Conejo Valley Chapter began back in September of 1970 with 15 Patronesses and 16 Ticktockers. On March 10, 1972 at a luncheon at the Westlake Village Inn, it was announced that the Chapter’s application for charter was accepted, and we officially became a part of
National Charity League, Inc. Today, we currently have over 120 Patronesses and 140 Ticktockers and are proud to be celebrating our 50 year anniversary as a chapter!
