How to resign from a voluntary position?

I have a voluntary position with the union I'm a member of, which involves a lot of extra work, which has been fine up until now. Recently, the job role has changed, with people in my position being encouraged to take on additional duties. There have also been other changes that I'm not happy with. How do I go about resigning my position without causing bad feeling, especially as I will likely need the services of the organisation in the future? [more inside]

Quitting a new job after 2 months...please hope me!

I just hit the two month mark at my new job. I am miserable, due primarily to doing the work of about 3 people and the company culture (it's a small, family run business, and the two sons who are taking over the company in the next 2 years ran down the public hallway cursing each other out and hitting one another yesterday, to the point that one of them left with his face bleeding and we had to talk a tenant down the hall out of calling the cops). I've decided to leave, despite not having another job lined up. a) What's the best way to do this, and b) How do I spin it to potential employers? [more inside]

Dirty Pics! Resign or Face Wrath?

Asking for a close friend. Said close friend accidentally left a USB drive in a work computer today that contained less than appropriate photo's of him on it. A co-worker found the drive and the photo's this evening. His boss is now giving him the option to resign this evening or face a full HR investigation in the morning. He recognizes this was a huge mistake on his part, but wonders what to do? Resign tonight, or face the wrath of HR in the morning?

Brokerage doesn't want our money anymore

My wife's brokerage has just resigned as the guardian of her traditional IRA, due to lack of activity (she's a buy-and-hold type of person, and has more recently been contributing to a Roth IRA). The account contains a few stocks and some cash. She needs to make a decision fairly soon as to what to do with the account -- otherwise they'll just sell the stocks and send her a big check that she'll have to do something with in order to avoid tax penalties. What options should she be considering? (If it matters, the total is less than $20K).

I notice you're leaving

I recently gave an extended notice period to my employer (ie, notice that I'd be giving notice) to the tune of 7 weeks. I now feel I acted rashly, and am mulling over staying. Is it feasible to rescind notice, if its actually pre-notice? [more inside]

How do I quit my job in such a way that I still collect upcoming bonus?

I am on the verge of leaving my job at a large game company (the largest) in order to start work elsewhere. Our annual bonus (based on company performance over the last year, expected to be quite good this year) isn't issued till June 1st. I am wondering-- if I give notice and leave before June 1st, am I still entitled to this bonus? How can I find out without potentially spilling the beans that I'm leaving? (I haven't told my manager yet.) Also, if I give 2 weeks notice in such a way that my last day is after June 1st, can the company terminate me in less than 2 weeks so that I don't get my bonus? (In other words if I want to be absolutely sure of collecting my bonus, would it be safest to not give notice at all until June 1st? Assuming I can delay my start date at the new place that long...)

Cheney, too.

Can Bush be forced to resign? Criminal incompetence is probably not an impeachable offense, but something has to be done about Bush. I'd be interested in being part of a "Bush Must Resign" movement, but absent the threat of impeachment, what kind of pressure could be put on him? Can anyone think of another country, with a system similar to the US, where the leader was forced out without revolution?

Moving On Up... or Not

My manager is resigning. Her position, by all rights, should be mine. I have recommendations from all the various people I work with on a daily basis, and at least two managers (my own, soon-to-be-gone, and another in a related department). The CFO doesn't think I'm ready, however, and is currently trying to head hunt....apparently with some success.

Should I resign if he ignores all these folks and doesn't even at least discuss the issue with me? I think it shows pretty clearly I don't have a future with this company....I've been here for years and can do the job.

How do you resign from a job that you've never actually worked?

How do you resign from a job that you've never actually worked? I was hired in the fall to teach a continuing ed photography class, but not enough people signed up, so I didn't teach the class. Same thing happened in winter quarter, not enough people to have the class. Now I'm in the position where I can't really do it spring quarter and this will be the time when there are enough people. So, how do I let them know I can't do it?
