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.

October Meeting: Q&A With Dr. Joseph Ricca, New White Plains Superintendent of Schools
The October Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. Our Special Guest will be Dr. Joseph Ricca, who took over as White Plains Superintendent of Schools on July 1st.
Youthful and personable, Dr. Ricca comes well-recommended, with stellar credentials. Dr. Ricca has eight years’ experience as a Superintendent – the last four in the Elmsford Union Free School District, and prior to that, in East Hanover, NJ. He also has experience as a Principal and a Teacher. He has a Bachelor’s Degree from Seton Hall University, two Master's Degrees – from Harvard University and Caldwell College – and a Doctorate in Education from Walden University. And he did advanced studies at Oxford University in England.
Dr. Ricca is a thoroughly modern Joe who documents his active days on Twitter and practices Management By Walking Around. Dr. Joe is known as much for his erudition as for leading by example.
Join us for a discussion with our new Superintendent. Find out about the District, its future, his vision and more. Be prepared to participate in a lively Q&A exchange.
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.
