Proclamations are issued by the Governor as a courtesy to Wyomingites to honor and celebrate events, recognize achievements or increase public awareness of noteworthy causes. Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are honored at the Governor’s discretion and subject to the guidelines of the policy. The Governor’s Office reserves the right to decline any proclamation request or edit any draft language.
NOTE: Proclamations are strictly ceremonial. The documents are not legally binding and should not be interpreted as a policy endorsement. Proclamations should not take sides on matters of political controversy; nor should they address personal or individual convictions.
What is a Proclamation?
Proclamations by the Governor are issued at the discretion of the Governor as a courtesy to Wyoming residents in order to recognize a day, week, month, or for a cause of significant state wide interest.
Timing for a Request
Proclamations must be made through the Governor’s website no less than 45 days in advance. Requests may be rejected if not received within the deadline. Please note, if you are requesting a formal proclamation signing, a timely request is essential to accommodate the Governor’s schedule.
If you are requesting a formal signing, the Governor’s office offers opportunities for signing ceremonies twice a month, if the Governor has availability. Due to the large volume of requests, the ceremonies are limited each month with designated dates. If you need your proclamation by a particular date, please be sure to apply early to allow for sufficient time to process and schedule your request. NOTE: To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are offering formal signings through a virtual platform at this time, if you so desire.
