Lake Norman

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Lake Norman 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 or attend school in Mooresville or the surrounding areas. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Lake Norman aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

We are the 240th NCL Inc. Chapter to form in the United States.


NCL, Inc. provides opportunities for mothers, known as “Patronesses” and daughters, known as “Ticktockers,” to cultivate both mother-daughter and peer relationships through service to others.


The Ticktocker experience is a small group leadership program that allows each young woman to know the joy of helping others, to learn tolerance and kindness, to build confidence and maturity, and to make friends while sharing and participating in service activities.


The Patroness experience allows mothers to work alongside their daughters as they broaden their perspective of the world around them.  Patronesses also have the satisfaction of working with other talented women to advance the mission of our Lake Norman Chapter.
