OUR CHAPTER HISTORY

 

The Las Vegas Chapter of National Charity League was founded in 2003 by Laura Hobbs and Janice Stromberg. Both mothers wanted to provide their daughters with a quality community service opportunity.  Charter status with the National organization was obtained in April of 2005.  Our first graduating class held their Senior Presents event in 2006, now referred to as Senior Recognition.

The chapter is a part of NCL, Inc. District 8 Council-Region III; which includes the chartered chapters of Green Valley in Nevada, as well as the Arizona Chapters of Ahwatukee Foothills, Arrowhead, Cactus Wren, Camelback Mountain, East Valley, Moon Valley, Phoenix, San Tan, Scottsdale, Sonoran Centennial, and Tucson.
