The White Plains Council of Neighborhood Associations (WPCNA) coordinates the neighborhood associations in White Plains, NY.
Its purpose is to enhance the quality of life in the City, and in particular, in its neighborhoods.
As an advisory council, the WPCNA functions by disseminating information and opinion to the public and public officials, and by encouraging local action.
Its monthly meetings bring together both representatives from the member associations, who come to discuss the citywide issues impacting their neighborhoods, and unaffiliated White Plains residents, who come to voice individual concerns.
The WPCNA encourages members to develop and share resources and activities to benefit the people of White Plains.

April Monthly Meeting: New York Health Act -- No Co-Pays, Premiums or Deductibles
The April Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. The Guest Speaker will be Madeline Zevon, Health Care Chair for the League of Women Voters (LWV) in Westchester and in New York State.
The LWV is championing the New York Health Act, a single-payer health program currently before the NYS Legislature. According to Ms. Zevon, it would ensure that everyone in NYS would have health care costs covered. There would be no co-pays, no decuctibles and no premiums. It would be paid for by a progressive, sliding-scale tax based on income. Ms. Zevon will open the floor for questions and discussion after her presentation.
The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends, neighbors, and questions -- and will start promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
This is sure to be a lively evening so please come early to get a good seat, and allow time for audience participation and networking.
