There are two ways to apply for a Proclamation: by mail or by email.

Email the request to Kelly Miller or mail a draft with the exact wording of your proclamation to:

Kelly Miller
Public Information Officer

If you choose the email option, make sure you use the following convention for the email’s subject: PROCLAMATION – Date Needed – Brief Description. For example, PROCLAMATION – 04-12-15 – Volunteer Week.

The draft will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the recommended criteria. All proclamations are subject to editing.

If approved, the requester will receive one signed original and one copy of the proclamation.
