According the recently amended page, “the Alliance is led by a steering committee of 30 members. The steering committee elects directors who represent the Newton Villages Alliance.”
The 2015 directors are:
- Elaine Rush Arruda (Auburndale)
- John Koot (Newton Highlands)
- Ron Mauri (Newton Highlands)
- Kathleen Kouril Grieser (Newtonville)
- Isabelle Albeck (Waban)
