Make a Local Proclamation
Spread the word about Provider Appreciation Day in your community. One way to celebrate is through a proclamation from your mayor or governor.
- Call or email your city council, mayor or governor’s office to determine how proclamations are issued. Often, this information is found on your local and state government’s website.
- Identify an elected official to sponsor the proclamation. This may be a city council member, mayor or even the governor. Some states have online forms where you can request a proclamation online. Remember to have all of your materials ready when submitting a request.
- Work with your sponsor to determine a timeline for the approval process. You’ll work closely together in seeing the proclamation through to the final stages.
- Once the proclamation is issued, encourage officials and the community to show support by sharing the proclamation on social media, local events and the local paper. Express thanks with a formal letter to the elected officials that helped make it happen. Don’t forget to recognize these individuals on social media too!
