Del Sol

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Del Sol 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 San Diego County. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Del Sol aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

The Del Sol Chapter of NCL, Inc. has members from Coronado to Oceanside and was founded in 2005 by our founding members Tamara Chow (1st President~2006-2008), Donna Birks (1st Treasurer) and Maggie Bentley (1st Secretary).  We think big and try to maximize our impact on the community with our 300 members serving over 30 local and national philanthropies across San Diego County.
The members of our Del Sol chapter form closer bonds with their daughters and are cherishing the time they spend serving the community together. Our members are grateful for the opportunity to become part of such an amazing organization of women and together look forward to what the future holds for the Del Sol chapter. Some of our annual chapter traditions are the Mother & Daughter Awards Tea, Ticktocker Day, our 10th Grade Fashion Show, and of course the end-of-year Senior Recognition. We value these exciting times spent with our daughters, and we look forward to the opportunity to share them with you!

    Leadership development is a core component of the NCL experience. Over the course of their six years in NCL, we watch our daughters blossom into accomplished young women ready to take on the world.

    One of the ways we foster leadership and learning is through our annual Ticktocker Day, a  Del Sol chapter tradition where Ticktockers come together and focus on philanthropy, leadership and personal development. The theme for our most recent Ticktocker Day was Game On and represented the girls rolling up their sleeves, bringing their best self to NCL and joining in to help others in their community. Motivational speaker, Lex Gillette, a blind paralympian came to speak and inspired the Ticktockers to set goals, aim for the stars and realize there is no limit to what they can achieve if they have a vision.

    Each Ticktocker class has Board Officers and Appointed positions. Members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, consensus and team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure. Every Ticktocker is encourage to serve on the grade level Board at least once during her years in NCL.
