Convention is our neighborhood at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Tarrytown, NY.  It has never been in Westchester before.  We are looking to have a strong representation at Convention.

Here are some reasons why to attend Convention:

  • Meet, network and develop relationships with others from all across NYS who love children as much as you do.
  • Vote for new state officers.
  • Determine resolutions long held by our association to be retained or updated, and vote on some new resolutions as well.
  • Hear from National PTA representatives and other keynote speakers.
  • Participate in motivating and informative workshop sessions on current issues, advocacy and leadership training that will help you develop programs, projects and activities in your local PTA.
  • Visit the Exhibitor Showcase and the Reflections Art Gallery.

Advocacy Opportunity Open for WEPR High School Students for Rye Neck PTSA!


Calling all student leaders!  Do you know a student who would like to have a greater voice in their educational journey?  Do you know a student who could advocate for change in your school district? Do you have students who want to celebrate the positive initiatives in your community? We have designed a day just for them!  We want to hear their voices!

We are so excited to announce the 1st Annual Rye Neck PTSA Student Leadership and Advocacy Conference.  This one-day FREE conference will be an outstanding opportunity for your student leaders to collaborate with their peers from across Westchester and Putnam Counties.  Through skills-based workshops and student-directed brainstorming sessions, they will create a plan to make change happen in their district, their county and even New York State!

It’s time for our students to have a platform to advocate on their own behalf.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Designate a PTA point person to coordinate your high school’s conference team selection.

  1. Work with your Student Government and/or your high school principal to encourage and invite students to apply.

  1. Distribute or post Registration Packets making them accessible to all interested high school students across all grade levels.

  1. Collect essays, review submissions and select a team of 3 or 4 students (one from each grade).  We suggest working with your high school administration to ensure fair and impartial essay selection.

  1. Once selected, connect with your student team to generate excitement for this amazing day which will feature meeting Senator Shelley Mayer, working with New York State PTA members, and a chance to participate in the FIRST EVER New York State PTA Student Lobby Day.

  1. It is important to remember, this is a day just for students.  PTA members and parents do not need to attend. However, if you are interested, we do have limited volunteer opportunities for PTA members.

YOUR students will make this day an amazing success.  We can’t wait to hear what they have to say.  We look forward to answering any questions you may have.  Please feel free to contact us anytime at the information below or visit us at www.ryeneckptsaadvocacy.org.
