Request a Proclamation from Mayor Williams

Download the Proclamation Request form.

Proclamations are provided by the Office of the Mayor as a service to Wilmington residents with the goal of honoring individuals or organizations, celebrating events of mass appeal, and increasing public awareness of noteworthy issues affecting our citizens. These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding.

Proclamation requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and submission of this form does not guarantee issuance. The Office of the Mayor reserves the right to decline any request for a proclamation.

Due to editorial content and/or space limitations, we reserve the right to edit all submissions.

No proclamation may be used as part of an advertisement or commercial promotion without express permission from the Mayor’s Office. Issuance of a proclamation does not constitute an endorsement of any individual, organization or entity by the Mayor.
