BBC - Board Member Resignation

Code: BBC
Adopted: 10/11/95
Re-adopted: 8/13/97, 6/8/22
The Board believes that any citizen who files and seeks election or appointment to the Board should do so with full knowledge of and appreciation for the investment in time, effort and dedication expected of all Board members, and that the citizen’s intent is to serve a full term of office.
When a member decides to terminate service, the Board requests earliest possible notification of intent to resign so the Board may plan for the continuity of Board business. Resignations must be made in writing. Board members can resign the office effective at a future date. If the resignation is effective at a future date, the resignation is binding unless withdrawn in writing by the end of the third business day after the resignation is made.
The Board will announce the resignation and declare the vacancy at a Board meeting.
The Board will determine the procedures to be used in filling the vacancy. The Board may begin a replacement process and select a successor prior to the effective date of resignation; however, the actual appointment shall not be made before the resignation date.
