Proclamations

What is a Proclamation? 

Proclamations are issued at the discretion of the governor as a courtesy to Georgia residents to recognize a day, week, or month for a cause of significant statewide interest. All proclamations require an in-state sponsor and suggested language. These documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding.

Timing your Request

Requests must be made through the governor’s website no less than 45 calendar days in advance of the date needed or date to be proclaimed. Proclamations may be requested, but will not be issued, more than three months in advance. 

About Requesting a Proclamation

Proclamations are issued for one date period (day, week, month) once per year. Requests that are similar to a proclamation previously issued the same year will be declined, and a copy of the similar proclamation will be provided instead. More information is available under the proclamation guidelines here.
