When a director of a corporation resigns, the latter must send the corporation a notice to that effect. In turn, the corporation must accept the director's resignation by resolution and determine whether or not it is necessary to proceed with the replacement of the resigning director.
Should the director act as an officer in the corporation and also wishes to resign from this position, the corporation will determine whether or not it shall replace him or her as officer. However, if the resigning director holds the office of president of the corporation, this position will necessarily be subject to a replacement.
The resolution for the acceptance of the resignation of a director, available on this website, will meet the needs of most corporations for relatively simple situations.

In general, any decision concerning a corporation must be made by resolution passed by its board of directors or, where applicable, its shareholders.
Any resolution of the corporation should be recorded and kept in its minute book.
