About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Richardson Area 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 Richardson area including Plano, Garland and Dallas. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Richardson Area aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

The NCL Experience is a unique and rewarding six-year journey for 7th-12th grade daughters (Ticktockers) and their moms (Patronesses). With over 20 years of history as a Chapter, and over 200 members, we have established a wealth of knowledge and traditions. From our annual kidnap breakfast in August to our Junior-Senior Style Show, Chapter Tea, and Senior Presentation, every occasion is cherished by our members as they experience this exciting six-year journey with us. We come together as a family to celebrate the successes of our members and to recognize them for all they contribute to our Chapter and to the Community at large.
