Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I would assume that once elected Community Moderator, that position can be indefinitely retained when carrying out the moderator duties.

However, if a moderator can no longer carry out his or her duties (due to time constraints, etc.) is there a procedure in place for resigning or removing a Community Moderator? Or would the person retain their position anyway.

There isn't really concern on my part, just curiosity.

I have noted the Should Community Moderators be “elected for life” post, but that seems to be suggesting an actual term limit.

With regards to removing a moderator, yes, there is a procedure for that: Handling calls to remove a moderator – Bart Mar 3 '13 at 21:16
@Bart very interesting thank you – DGund Mar 3 '13 at 22:50
The resignation process is sending an email to Stack Exchange with "I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMOREEEEEEE" in the subject line. – Yannis Mar 3 '13 at 23:08

The term is effectively for as long as you want to be a moderator. You can resign if you like. There's also a provision to remove moderators who are active on their site for several months without participating in moderator activity, but I don't know if that's ever been exercised.
