At times you may take up the role as an outside collaborator that often would chip in and help out with the refactoring of source code and other collaborator-things.

You may also even be a member of an organization but you feel your time is up and choose to leave.

In any circumstance you find yourself in, you can completely remove yourself from an organization on GitHub at any time with no repercussions.

In this guide, I’ll show you how you can remove yourself from an organization on GitHub in less than 3 minutes of your time. 

Let’s dive right in. 🙂


Head’s up!

If you’re paying the GitHub bills for your organization and you’re thinking of leaving the organization, then it’s important to have another owner or billing manager take charge of the bills before you leave the organization. GitHub does not update the billing information for the organization.
