Whether a member serves on a non-profit organization's volunteer board of directors or a corporation's board, resignation from service calls for written notice. Usually, these resignation letters are addressed to the full board, the chairperson or a combination of the two. The letter should indicate the effective date of the resignation and the reason for leaving the organization.

Dear Ms. Chairwoman and Board Members,

It is with deep regret that I announce my resignation from the Parker County Children First Initiative, effective January 1, 2015. I am moving out of the area and will not be able to devote the necessary time and attention to the Children First Initiative.

Please know that I have thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed the opportunity to serve with you all to further childhood nutrition, fitness and wellness. I am proud of our collective achievements and the significant progress the Initiative has made toward improving the emotional and physical health of our community's children. I am particularly honored to have served as chair of the organization's volunteer fundraising activities, and I am truly grateful for the extensive assistance each of you offered. As a board and as individuals, you are all tremendously talented, and I feel lucky to have volunteered by your side these past six years.

I am hopeful that I have given sufficient advance notice so that we can ensure a smooth transition for the next Fundraising Chair. I will always champion your cause and remain available to the organization via telephone or email. I look forward to seeing your many future accomplishments.

Sincerest regards,

Marianne Coupier
