Subject: Board Member Resignation Letter.


Dear Mr. Scrooge,

This letter serves as a notice of my resignation as a Board Member of the Company Board of Far East Corporation. I shall not be sitting in at the next Board meeting on February 20, 2011.

It has taken me a long time to reach this decision to resign as a Board Member, having served for eight years. But the time has come for me to make way for the younger generation to take over my place in the Company Board this year.  My health issue is not allowing me to continue further to this honorable position. Hence, my resignation will take immediate effect.

I had a great time over here and we accomplished many goals together. I too progressed a lot working here as a board member both in nature and skills. I had great plans for the board ahead but my ill health has ransacked me totally. I know this is a very responsible position which requires effective commandment and implementation skills. My journey with your team finally ends here.

Please feel free to appoint another member to take my seat in the Company Board. I am confident of your choice of successor for the benefit of the company.

Allow me to record my appreciation for your support during my tenure at the Board.

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely

Gerry Williams.
