   A citywide forum on education, safety, health, government, the environment, open space.

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.

November Monthly Meeting:
State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins: What Albany Has in Store for White Plains

The November Meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. (NOTE: This meeting is scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday to avoid an Election Day conflict.) The Guest Speaker will be NY State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who will reveal "How Developments in Albany Impact White Plains Residents."

NY State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins

Senator Stewart-Cousins earned her B.S. and her Masters of Public Administration from Pace University. Before entering public service, she worked in sales and marketing for New York Telephone/AT&T and also worked as a reporter and teacher, then served for a decade as a Westchester County Legislator. She was first elected to the State Senate in 2006 and currently represents Greenburgh, part of White Plains, part of New Rochelle, part of Yonkers and Scarsdale.

In 2012, Senator Stewart-Cousins was elected Leader of the Senate Democratic Conference, becoming the first female leader of a legislative conference in New York State history. Ms. Stewart-Cousins has always espoused the values of empathy, empowerment and civic engagement. These values, along with her strong belief in advocating for the underserved and championing the needs of working families, have distinguished her as a trailblazer in local and State government.

Keller William salesperson Tom Osbeck

Before Senator Stewart-Cousins' presentation, Thomas Osbeck, a Keller Williams Realty Salesperson, will talk briefly about an idea he has been working on that he describes as "a grass roots concept centered around neighborhood safety and connectivity with residents."

The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends and neighbors -- and will start promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Senator Stewart-Cousins is a dynamic, informative speaker, so come early to get a good seat, catch Tom Osbeck's intriguing idea, and allow for audience participation and networking.
