How does an officer resign gracefully without resorting to "ghosting"?
As above, which applies to all adult membership categories.
Is there a preferred method? Are you able to rejoin later if you resign?
There's really just the above, other then converting to Patron status. Please make sure to provide your Unit CC
the email or letter of resignation. NHQ will not allow "voluntary resignations" without it and
then you become a ghost. One line suffices.
Are you able to rejoin later if you resign?
Your ability to rejoin will be subject tothe same membership board and acceptance by a unit CC as
a new member, beyond that, yes.
Are there any files that I should copy before I hand in my letter, e.g. PD training / levels?
Printing out a "Member Search Report" from eServices (link is at the top of the page) wouldn't be a bad idea,
and of course you are allowed to view / copy your personnel file at any time, so if you want to make sure you
have everything, you could request that.
