Leaving your job? It’s important to provide a written letter of resignation for several reasons.
While your company may not have an office “written intent to resign” policy, it is just more professional and courteous to provide a formal letter of resignation.
A written document allows you to extend your thanks for the opportunities your employer has provided, and to put your reason for leaving on record.
Most importantly, however, it creates a paper trail that shows you’ve given notice on a certain date, which can help prevent legal hiccups if there are issues processing your final paycheck or calculating your last day of benefits.
Here is an example of a (Board of Directors Resignation) Resignation Letter:
Smith Jones Company

It is with regret that I tender my resignation from the AllisonTaylor’ board of directors, effective September 1, 2016.
I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve on the board of this fine organization for the past 20 years, and I offer my best wishes for its continued success.
