About Our Chapter

The NCL Experience inspires and empowers women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors to their communities.

The value of membership in NCL, Inc. lasts a lifetime — it uniquely draws women and girls together to focus their minds, hearts and talents towards creating positive change in their communities and the nation.  Each Chapter, with the guidance of the National organization, develops its own six-year plan, which includes a variety of age appropriate and meaningful programming opportunities for daughters, called Ticktockers, and mothers, called Patronesses.

Each Ticktocker grade level is organized by elected Ticktocker officers and coached by Patronesses acting as Grade Level Advisors.  The activities designated on the six-year plan are organized for Personal Development (life skills), Leadership Development (professional skills) and Cultural Competency (social skills).

In addition to working closely with daughters and supporting their local communities, all Patronesses hold a Chapter job each year and actively participate as leaders in the operational success of the Chapter.

The Allen Chapter is proud of of our partnerships with over one dozen local philanthropic organizations.  Through these partnerships our members contribute over 5,400 hands-on service hours to our local community each year.

Each February we participate in NCL, Inc. National Philanthropy Initiative, benefiting our military philanthropy partner — Operation Homefront.

Other annual events are the Junior Style Show each fall and a long-standing NCL, Inc. tradition, the Mother~Daughter Tea, each spring.  Also celebrated in spring is Senior Recognition, our signature event honoring the accomplishments of our graduating senior Ticktocker class.
