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.

December Holiday Meeting: Reinventing the Concept of Local News
The December Meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 7:30 pm at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains, NY. The Annual Holiday Meeting will include the Election of WPCNA Officers, a pizza dinner menu, and a roundtable discussion of the Role of Social Media in Making, Breaking and Publishing Local News.
With the almost total demise of local newspapers in White Plains, what constitutes news, who curates it, and how it's monetized and consumed has changed radically. Nobody makes a daily stop at the newsstand to pick up a paper. Instead we have Facebook open most of the day as we consume, create and personally curate "the news."
Rich Liebson, Central Westchester reporter for Lohud. (aka the Journal News) will also join us to compare and contrast traditional news and the news as seen on social media.
The meeting is open to the public -- bring your friends and neighbors -- and will start promptly at 7:30 pm. A pizza dinner will be served.
This is sure to be a lively evening so please come early to allow time for audience participation and networking.
