“Dear Mrs Cord,

It is with sadness that I must resign my position as a member of XYZ book club. My family will be moving out of state on October 1 and I will no longer be able to fulfil 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 book club and know that we made some very positive changes to people’s lives. I am especially proud of the children’s centre that we were able to build with funds raised through a variety of functions. I know that my children enjoyed using the centre while we lived in the area.

I am certain that the club 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 555-322-3214 or email me at

Sincerely Yours

Tamara R. Hope”
