Proclamation Request Form

  • Proclamations from the governor may be issued for causes, occupations, state-wide nonprofit organizations celebrating major milestone anniversaries (25th, 50th, 75th, 100th, etc.) or occasions required by statute.
  • Requests must be made 4-6 weeks prior to the date needed.  Any language submitted may be edited, rewritten, or rejected without notice.
  • Proclamation requests must be requested by Tennessee residents or nonprofit organizations with a Tennessee resident sponsor. 
  • Please note that we attempt to keep proclamations to no more than one page in length (usually 300-350 words maximum) including the seal & signature areas. Please use simple clauses.     
  • Proclamations are NOT issued for individuals, conferences, birthdays, retirements, weddings or anniversaries.  Instead, consider using the Certificate or Letter request option.

The Secretary of State maintains an online archive of proclamations that have been issued during this administration.
