The trade group said Short would leave May 31, according to Real Estate NJ, and has not yet named a successor.

The NJBA did not immediately respond to an ROI-NJ request for confirmation.

“Her leadership and counsel over the years have bene invaluable, as well as her most recent advocacy on behalf of the building industry in response to the governor’s declaration of a public health emergency and statewide shuttering due to the coronavirus outbreak,” Corey Wescoe, NJBA’s immediate past president, said in a statement quoted by Real Estate NJ.

Short was named to Gov. Phil Murphy’s Restart and Recovery Advisory Council, in the area of Facilities and Construction, earlier this month.

She became the first female CEO in NJBA history in 2013, Real Estate NJ noted.
