Request a Proclamation

Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin welcomes the opportunity to recognize exceptional individuals, groups and events within the City of Charleston. 

The Mayor’s Office reserves the right to modify or deny any proclamation request. An organization does not have exclusive rights to one day, week or month of their proclamation and proclamations issued in previous years will not be automatically re-issued. A new request must be submitted and approved.

Proclamations may be published on your organization’s website or social media. If you intend to use the Mayor’s name or image while promoting your proclamation, please contact the communications office first at 304-348-8000 ext. 291 or email
