If a Board requests a member to resign, is that done with an ordinary motion?

Same question for requesting a director take a leave of abscence.

Yes, except that the phrase "leave of [absence]" does not appear in RONR, so that even if the director were willing, it might be difficult to comply with the request.  Do the bylaws contain a provision for leaves of absence?

If a board member requests some other board member to resign, this could simply be left at that, in which event it is the request of that board member. It could also be handled as a main motion. If adopted, the board itself has now requested that this board member resign, but it must be understood that this is still simply a request. Resignation is a voluntary act.

If the board member wishes to resign, then the appropriate motion is Request to be Excused from a Duty. See RONR, 11th ed., pgs. 289-292. If the board member does not wish to resign, the organization will need to use the rules removal in its own bylaws or, in the absence of such rules, the procedures in RONR.

I am not entirely certain what this “leave of absence” entails, but I think it is the same as above, to the extent that the details of such a request are within the board’s power to grant.
