Laura Worf, who led Olympia Master Builders for seven years, is set to resign from the trade association at the end of June, the organization announced Thursday.

Communications Director Angela White will fill the executive officer role on an interim basis, beginning May 1. A search committee has been formed to find a replacement, according to a news release.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Olympia Master Builders at 360-754-0912 for more information.

Board President John McKinlay thanked Worf for her leadership.

"Due to Worf's efforts, OMB is in a strong position to support members as the housing industry moves into a time of recovery," McKinlay said in a statement.

But in a letter to the board, Worf also said the past seven years has been very demanding and that she's looking forward to a change of pace.

During her tenure, the housing market shot to new highs, but it also fell hard, triggering a deep recession that the country is still trying to emerge from.

She will finalize her duties as executive officer on April 30, but will work with OMB's leadership and staff through June to help with the transition.

Olympia Master Builders, which was formed in 1959, is a trade association that serves the construction industry in a five-county region, including Thurston County.
