President’s Message

Thank you for visiting the Short Hills Association (“SHA”) website, your online link to the civic association that has served the Short Hills community since 1911.  SHA is a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization.

Its mission remains the same as when 150 residents formed it May 5, 1911 at the Casino, now the Racquets Club, namely:

  1. To promote the interest and welfare of the Township of Millburn
  2. To preserve the general character of Short Hills and to protect the interests of its residents
  3. To study and examine the activities of the Township Committee, the Board of Education and other township commissions and boards and to submit reports and make public recommendations when deemed advisable
  4. To encourage participation in civic activities

The SHA Board of Directors meet monthly to discuss Township issues, develop positions and advocate them to decision makers.  We are committed to improving the quality of life for our residents as well as to upholding the highly regarded reputation of the township and school district.

Board members attend meetings of the Township Committee, Board of Education, Zoning and Planning Boards, the Historic Preservation Commission and other relevant organizations.  We host an annual forum for the public, to meet and hear Board of Education and Township Committee candidates during an election year.

We invite you to visit our Facebook and Twitter pages and to submit your comments, concerns and suggestions.

Please join the hundreds of Short Hills families who support our mission by becoming a member or renewing your membership.  Annual dues are only $20.00, payable to Short Hills Association and may be sent to SHA, P.O. Box 171, Short Hills, NJ  07078.  Please include your address and phone number.  Your email address enables us to communicate with you on urgent matters and it will be kept confidential.   Dues notices are mailed to all Short Hills addresses in early November for the following year.

James LaDue

President, Short Hills Association
