Resigning is properly accomplished by delivering a written resignation to the secretary (or whoever may have appointed you to your position).

Resignations can also be made orally (or in writing) at a meeting. If you resign during a meeting, and the assembly put you in the position from which you are resigning, the presiding officer can assume the motion to accept the resignation, and the assembly can excuse you from your duty by voting to accept the resignation.

Filing vacansie here under the Robert Rules..

Filling Officer Vacancies

Authority to Appoint. Unless otherwise provided in the articles or bylaws, a vacancy created by the resignation, removal or death of an officer is filled by approval of the board. (Corp. Code §7213(b).) This general principle is also described in Robert's Rules of Order:

The power to appoint or elect persons to any office or board carries with it the power to accept their resignations, and also the power to fill any vacancy occurring in it, unless the bylaws expressly provide otherwise. (Robert's Rules, 11th ed., p. 467.)

By a majority vote, the remaining directors fill officer vacancies. The president may participate in the process but does not have the power to be the sole determiner in the selection of replacement officers.

No Officer Election Required. The individual replacement of persons who may occasionally vacate the boardmembership does not trigger a new election of officers. (Robert's Rules, 11th ed., pp. 488-489.)
