Membership Information

We invite you to consider membership in the NCL Monterey Bay Chapter. Some things to keep in mind about the membership process:

  • Timeline: Applications for membership are accepted during the Annual Membership Drive from November – January each year for daughters in grades 6th – 9th at the time of the Membership Drive. We are currently accepting membership inquiries for the 2020-21 Membership Drive. Click here for our Membership Inquiry Form.
  • Residence: A Prospective Member shall reside in Monterey County.
  • Sponsorship: A Prospective Member shall be sponsored by an Active Patroness and co-sponsored by an Active, Provisional or Sustainer Patroness Member in our Chapter. (We can help connect you with a sponsor and co-sponsor, if needed!).
  • Open Houses:  We encourage you and your daughter to attend one of our two Open Houses.
  •  Application: Is completed electronically.

The NCL experience is designed to take place largely within six grade level classes.  Because it is designed as a small group program, class size is a critical factor to ensure a successful program.  Openings in all classes above 7th grade are at the discretion of the Chapter Board and are based on a predetermined class size range.

The Chapter Board, upon the recommendation of the Membership Committee, shall make the final selections into membership.
