About Our Chapter
NCL, Inc., Summit County 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 or attend school in Summit County or Wasatch County. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Summit County aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.
The Summit County Chapter was founded in 2013, and was the second chapter formed in Utah. A group of enthusiastic moms led by a former NCL, Inc. Patroness from another part of the country, joined together to create an expansion chapter to serve Summit and Wasatch County. A large and well-established chapter exists in Salt Lake City, and there was clearly an opportunity to create a chapter close to home.
The Summit County Chapter was considered an expansion chapter until it reached 50 total members in 2016 and became a full-fledged NCL, Inc. Chapter.
Mothers and daughters who live in Park City, Heber, Midway, Kamas, Coalville, (Summit and Wasatch Counties) with daughters rising into 7th through 10th grade, are invited to join through our sponsored membership drive.
We have enjoyed many group-wide philanthropic events with all of our chapter’s mothers and daughters, service projects with individual mother and daughter duos, grade level daughter-only events, social events for the moms only, and NCL Inc.’s traditional, annual, mother-daughter tea.

Facilitating our daughters’ development of leadership skills in an integral part of NCL, Inc.
A leadership council of Ticktockers run the daughter side of our chapter, and every Ticktocker is engaged with a job. Each Ticktocker has a committee position that helps to organize meetings, set up philanthropic events, plan activities, determine and execute methods to spread the word about NCL in Summit County, manage our social media presence, and much more.
The positions give young women responsibility, authority, ownership, and experience that will not only look great on a college application, but also help them develop as strong women in today’s world.
We preserve National Charity League traditions and core values, while appreciating the growth that comes from connecting with different communities and cultures.

It is through this understanding that we grow and develop broader worldviews that will shape and support our lives.
