Membership Information

Membership in our Montgomery Monarchs Chapter

We are always looking for new members to join our Chapter.  Our Membership drive begins in the fall of the sixth grade year for the prospective ticktocker (daughter) and patroness (mother).  A prospective patroness (new member) must have one sponsor, or two co-sponsors who are current members of NCL, Inc, Montgomery Monarchs Chapter.  The sponsor will let the Chapter know about your interest in membership.

The prospective patroness will attend a new member meeting, where requirements and expectations are discussed as well as specific information about our Chapter and the next steps in the Membership process. After the meeting, the prospective patroness will discuss with her sponsor and co-sponser whether or not she would like to proceed with membership.

A formal application will need to be completed by the sponsor, co-sponsor and prospective patroness. Once all applications are complete, a selection process will take place. We would like to accept all applicants; unfortunately, membership is limited, and not all who apply are guaranteed a place in the chapter. For more information on membership in the Montgomery Monarchs Chapter, please contact the Membership Vice President, Sara Hamblin at sihamblin@gmail.com or submit a Membership Inquiry Form here.
