Proclamations can take four to eight weeks be approved, and it must go through your governor's office. Most states have a simple online form to fill out, but some states still require a paper or emailed proclamation.
"Where As" statements are generally required. These are the terms of your proclamation. Copy the text from this sample proclamation and fill in the necessary information.
