Contact the Governor - Application
All requests for communication from Governor Hickenlooper must be received at least four weeks in advance of the date of printing. Any requests received fewer than four weeks in advance will not be prioritized and may not be fulfilled.
The Governor’s Office does not have pre-printed photos of Governor Hickenlooper. High resolution photographs are available on his website. Individuals wanting signed photos of the governor may print their own copies and send them to 136 State Capitol Denver, CO 80203 to have them signed.
Proclamations are non-binding documents signed by the Governor of Colorado in recognition of special events or significant issues. Requests for proclamations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and the Governor’s Office reserves the right to deny any such request for any reason.
- Four weeks’ notice is required to provide proclamations
- Sample language for the proclamation must be provided with the request
- Any sample language may be edited or rewritten at the discretion of the Governor’s Office
- Proclamations are not automatically reissued each year
- Approval process is not automatic. Please do not make announcements regarding the proclamation until you have been contacted by a member of the Governor’s staff
- Proclamations neither indicate nor imply Governor Hickenlooper’s support of any given issue, project or event
- Proclamations are issued for Colorado agencies and organizations – preferably with statewide, but at least regional interest. Local (city or countywide proclamations) can be issued by local officials (mayors or county commissioners). Proclamations for national organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Proclamations should not focus on specific businesses or organizations
- Proclamations are issued for one period of time only. For example, if “Blood Donation Day” is proclaimed on January 1, then “Blood Donation Week,” “Blood Donation Month” will not be proclaimed later in the year
- Colorado organizations are encouraged to coordinate their efforts with other similar groups before contacting the Governor’s Office. Organizations are also encouraged to request proclamations that coincide with national- or state-designated dates
- Requests that are similar to already issued proclamations will be declined. For example, if “Library Week” was proclaimed in January and a request for “Library Appreciation Month” is received in June, the request for “Library Appreciation Month” would be declined. A copy of the “Library Week” proclamation could be provided instead
- Proclamations may not be used for fundraising purposes, or as part of an advertisement or commercial promotion without written authorization from the Office of the Governor
