NCL is a mother-daughter membership organization, the purpose of which is to foster the mother-daughter relationship and develop leadership skills in women, primarily through philanthropic work.  It is the hope of NCL that our daughters will absorb the community values and ideals which our generation holds to be important and worthy of preservation.

NCL is designed as a small group leadership program whose membership is in part based on the availability of space in the daughter’s grade level.  Keeping the grade levels small is key to the program’s success.  For membership eligibility, the daughter (Ticktocker) must be in grades 7, 8, 9, or 10 the following September.  Openings in all classes above 7th grade are at the discretion of the Chapter, and largely based on attrition.  

Additional specifics of membership in the Waco Chapter include: 

1.     Applications for membership shall be accepted only during the annual membership selection period.  This period runs from October 1, 2022 to January 15, 2023.

2.     Prospective members shall be sponsored by Active members and co-sponsored by Active, Provisional and Sustainer members in good standing in the Chapter the Prospective member wishes to join.  The Sponsor should have known the Prospective member personally for a minimum of one (1) year.

3.     Selection is based upon compatibility to the membership.

4.     Members shall reside within McLennan County.

5.     Prospective members shall only apply to one Chapter.

6.     Final selection shall be made by the Chapter Board of Directors upon the recommendation of the Chapter Membership Committee.

Again, thank you so much for your interest in NCL’s Waco Chapter.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need clarification of any point regarding our organization and the application process.
