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.


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.
