Proclamation Request Guidelines and Procedure

Print RSS
Request a proclamation
Proclamations are ceremonial in nature and are provided by the mayor's office as a service to Town of Cary residents, employers and Town employees, with the goal of honoring and celebrating events and increasing awareness of noteworthy issues among citizens. These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding. Issuance of a proclamation does not necessarily constitute an endorsement by the Town of Cary government.

Guidelines and procedures

All requests for proclamations must be made in writing to the Town of Cary Town Clerk’s Office at least 10 business days prior to the date when the proclamation is needed.
  • Proclamations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure they adhere to guidelines. For consistency, and to ensure equity, the mayor will only issue a proclamation that complies with established guidelines.
  • Any proclamation request for a Town employee must be approved in advance by the department director.
  • Annual or other repeat requests must be made in writing for each occasion in accordance with these guidelines. Proclamations are not automatically renewed.
