About our Chapter
The Richardson Area Chapter of NCL, Inc., consists of Members residing all over the RISD attendance boundaries and has included girls from both private and public schools.
We currently have close to 250 mother-daughter Members in grades 7 through 12 who are each required to perform at 10-15 hours of service each year at any of 23 Chapter-approved non-profit organizations in the DFW community. In addition, we follow NCL Inc. Bylaws by requiring leadership development through volunteering within the Chapter and social/educational awareness by participating in cultural experiences (such as the Junior Style Show and the Mother-Daughter tea). How we accomplish these three pillars of NCL, Inc. (Community Service, Leadership Development and Cultural Experiences) are explained in further detail on separate pages of this site. In addition, because we are part of a NCL, Inc. District in the North Dallas area consisting of 10 Chapters, as well as Region 2 (Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas) which is comprised of 64 Chapters, we have the opportunity to network, share ideas, and build friendships with other NCL, Inc. Members outside of our Chapter.
Chapter Events and Celebrations
The Richardson Area Chapter also provides our Membership with opportunities to celebrate our special relationship and achievements. Mother-Daughter Teas allow us to teach our Ticktockers etiquette and social graces as well as spend time with our grade-level peers. Each year, we formally honor our Ticktockers for their leadership and hours of service to our philanthropies and our chapter at Awards & Installation. At this event, Ticktockers who have completed their grade level service hours requirements receive recognition, and we proudly present a number of special awards to those who have contributed additional hours of service to individual and combined philanthropies. A Ticktocker’s senior year is the finale to the six-year NCL Experience. This special year includes a Senior Recognition event held just prior to graduation. Senior Recognition is a beautiful formal event for Ticktockers, their families that celebrates the many accomplishments of their years in NCL, Inc.
