What is a Proclamation?

A proclamation is an official, formal, public announcement authorized by the signatures of the Governor and Secretary of State. It proclaims a day, week, or month for a specific cause. 

There should be at least a regional, and/or preferably, a statewide interest when proclamations are requested. Local issues should be proclaimed by local-government entities.

Organizations requesting proclamations are encouraged to coordinate their efforts with other similar groups, and to try to coincide with national or state-designated dates before contacting the Governor's office.

Although proclamations do not name specific local organizations, exceptions may be made in specific instances recognizing a large statewide organization celebrating a milestone anniversary in conjunction with its state convention, or when a national organization is holding a national meeting in Louisiana, or for certain non-profit organizations. Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis.

The Governor's Office of Constituent Services may assist you with a certificate if your request doesn't meet the proclamation guideline  Click for the Governor's Office of Constituent Services
