City, State, Zip Code

Dear Board members,

It is with sadness that I must resign my position as president of the Mayflower Resident’s Association. My family will be moving out of state on October 1 and I will no longer be able to fulfill my duties as treasurer. I will be more than willing to stay on for two more weeks to help find and train a replacement.

I am proud of the work we have done together with the association and know that we made some very positive changes to people’s lives. I am especially proud of the children’s center that we were able to build with funds raised through a variety of functions. I know that my children enjoyed using the center while we lived in the area.

I am certain that the society will find an adequate replacement and continue to do its good work. I want to thank you for the way you have personally helped me to improve as a person and for the things that you have taught me over the years. If you need to contact me, please feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Tamara R. Hope”

“Dear [Mention the name of the recipient],

With sincere regret, I, [Mention your name],am writing this letter to resign from [Mention the name] association. Being a member of this happy, popular association has been a matter of great pride for me but of late, I have not been feeling well and so I have decided to quit before it starts having a negative impact on my duties of the club.

When I first joined the society in the year [Mention it], I was very happy and excited about my role as a [Mention it]. I learned from you how to work together in a group with other members and fulfill all my duties and I also came to know how to work individually and take care of my duties whenever the occasion called for it. 

I remember organizing and participating in different community programs and events with other members and together we raised money for the under-developed section of the society. I don’t think anything can make me happier than the feeling that I had been able to achieve by helping them. The inner peace and contentment that I felt is something else, and the entire credit goes to the club. 

Recently, I have been having stress issues, an increasing headache every day and too much work or even light tasks are affecting my health, wearing me out. I can’t take it anymore and I have decided to see the doctor as soon as possible before things get out of hand for good.

I can assure you that I have totally enjoyed my time here, in fact, I didn’t even realize when [Mention the time period] was over in the blink of an eye, with people like you. 

Please convey my good wishes to all the members of [Mention the name] association and I wish all the best to each and every member for greater future achievements.

Yours sincerely,

[Mention your full name]”
