New York State Child Passenger Safety Advisory Board

The mission of the New York State Child Passenger Safety Advisory Board is to protect our child passengers by enhancing the quality and continuing growth of our child passenger safety program.

Child Passenger Safety Advisory Board

The New York State Child Passenger Safety Advisory Board was created in January 2004 as a result of the CPS task force meetings held statewide in 2003. Members of the Board were chosen to represent 14 regions of the state as well as special interests regarding child passenger safety. Each Regional Coordinator has been given the responsibility to help improve communication, provide assistance and program direction, address regional problems and issues, and assure that the Child Passenger Safety Standards of Performance are upheld. If at any time you have a question, idea, suggestion or anything that you feel the board should be made aware of, please feel free to contact your regional representative. Your representative is also your contact person for future CPS classes.

If you would like to attend one of our meetings, they are held four times a year, usually on a Monday, at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites , 16 Wolf Road, Albany, NY 12205 at 8:30 a.m. You must let the CPS Coordinator know you will be attending. Please make arrangements by emailing CPS Coordinator Aubrey Feldman.
