Oregon Rose

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Oregon Rose 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 northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. (Greater Portland, Oregon metropolitan area, including Vancouver, Washington.) Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Oregon Rose aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

Each class has 25-30 mother-daughter teams, giving the chapter close to 150 Ticktockers and their Patroness Mothers.

Our Ticktockers attend schools in the Portland area including West Sylvan, Cedar Park, Robert Gray, Lincoln, Catlin Gabel, OES, Sunset, St. Mary’s, Wilson, Jesuit and Central Catholic.

Our membership drive happens once a year from October through February. Be sure to check back to our website for more information. Applications are typically due in early February.
