NCL, Inc. provides Patronesses with leadership opportunities such as serving on the Chapter Board of Directors, acting as a liaison with our community based philanthropies, serving on committees which keep our Chapter running smoothly, and as leadership models for our Ticktocker grade level groups.
One of the pillars of NCL,Inc. for our Ticktockers is Leadership Development. Officers and elected and appointed annually for each grade level group. Ticktockers have many opportunities to take on leadership roles through committee work as well. Girls learn to follow parliamentary procedure for meetings, which will help them in their college, personal and career lives. Specific areas of age-appropriate development are outlined for each of the six grades that a Ticktocker is a Member of NCL, Inc.
For example, our 10th graders learn how to:
Conduct meetings (creating agendas, working on committees, listening and understanding how to act in a formal meeting)
Life skills (dating safety, personal safety, car safety, defensive driving)
Interview skills (job interview practice and etiquette)
Testing skills (PSAT, SAT, ACT, AP)
