About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Salt Lake City 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 Greater Salt Lake Area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Salt Lake City aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

ABOUT OUR CHAPTER

The NCL, Inc. mission is to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.

Daughters (Ticktockers) participate in a six-year program of philanthropic work, educational activities and cultural events, beginning in 7th grade and going through their senior year of high school. To facilitate this plan, Ticktockers may first join in the spring of their 6th-grade year. The last opportunity to join is in the spring of their 9th-grade year. Women may join NCL, Inc. without a daughter and become a Patroness-At-Large.

    Cultural Experiences

    As future leaders, we continually strive to build stronger ties with our communities and the individuals within them. It is through this understanding that we grow and develop broader worldviews that will shape and support our lives.

    Mothers and daughters of each class attend a cultural experience together with a focus on different areas of art, theatre, dance and music.

    Each chapter celebrates the richness of its history through traditions that honor the past. The Mother Daughter Tea is an NCL, Inc. tradition. Today, NCL chapters around the country continue to embrace their long-standing traditions, as well as, create new ones.

    CULTURAL EXPERIENCES

    NCL, Inc. encourages diverse cultural experiences to create an environment that nurtures positive identity by recognizing and appreciating the value of differences in each other and the world.
    NCL, Inc. supports exposure to culturally diverse people and events to broaden perspectives, promote awareness and teach cultural sensitivity. Some of the cultural experiences in which local chapters engage include:
    •    Performance art by members of another culture
    •    Museum of Tolerance
