Leadership Development

Members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, consensus and team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure.   Annually, the Chapter elects officers from among the Patronesses, affording the opportunity for mothers to further develop their leadership skills.

Each Ticktocker class has a different focus that corresponds with their development.  Beginning in 7th grade,  the Ticktockers explore leadership styles and NCL, Inc. core values. In 8th grade,  they learn to communicate more effectively and begin to lead their grade level meetings. As 9th graders, they further develop their listening skills, practice time management tools, and build self-confidence. The 10th grade Ticktockers learn to strengthen conflict resolution skills, prepare for future employment, and engage in public speaking. In 11th grade,  the Ticktockers establish future goals and identify college opportunities. Lastly, as seniors , the class mentors the younger Ticktockers and prepares for their Presentation Ball.   In addition, the Chapter has a Ticktocker Council, which is made up of class representatives.   The Council organizes a philanthropy activity each year.
