Terms and Conditions
  • Proclamation requests are accepted six weeks in advance of the event date or proclaimed date.
  • Requests will be accepted no more than 6 months in advance and will not be issued more than 3 months in advance of the event.
  • Proclamations recognize a day, week or month.
  • Proclamations are issued for Arizona residents or approved non-profit organizations with preferably statewide, but at least regional interest. Local (city or county wide proclamations) can be issued by local officials (mayors or county commissioners)
  • Proclamations will not name specific organizations unless they are non - profit.
  • Proclamations are issued for one period of time only. For example, if “Litter Cleanup Day” is proclaimed on January 1, then “Litter Cleanup Week, “ “Litter Cleanup Month” will not be proclaimed later in the year. Arizona organizations are encouraged to coordinate their efforts with other similar groups before contacting the Governor’s office. Organizations are encouraged to request proclamations that coincide with national or state- designated dates.
  • Requests that are similar to already issued proclamations will be declined. For example, if “Ballet Week” was proclaimed in January and a request for “Ballet Dance Month” is received in June, the request for “Ballet Month” would be declined. A copy of the “Ballet Week” proclamation could be provided instead.
  • Proclamations are not issued for conferences, birthdays, retirements, weddings, or anniversaries.
  • An exception may be made when a large statewide organization is celebrating a milestone anniversary in conjunction with a state convention. The Governor may declare to honor an anniversary of the association in conjunction with the convention.
  • Another exception may be made when a national organization is holding a national meeting in Arizona. The Governor may issue a proclamation in honor of the state and national organization in conjunction with its convention.
  • Any draft language provided may be edited or rewritten at the discretion of the Governor’s Office. Every request must gain official approval before being issued.
  • You may not republish the proclamation unless explicit written consent is granted from the Governor’s Office.
