About the NPC

The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of Trustees of the Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. 

The NPC, which consists of three elected representatives from each of Bronxville's seven election districts, solicits qualified residents who are interested in serving as School Trustee, and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school district election each May.
