Make your city and state a part of the NPW “we just got paid” celebration by asking your mayor and/or governor to issue a proclamation. You can request an official “National Payroll Week” proclamation in four easy steps:
  1. Visit Your Official’s Website
    Many state and local offices have transitioned to accepting online proclamation requests. Instead of submitting paper forms or visiting your local office, you might be able to complete your request at your fingertips.
  2. Contact the Government Official’s Office
    If you cannot complete the proclamation request online, contact your official’s local office. The office should be able to walk you through the process. Expect the entire process to take at least a month and plan accordingly.
  3. Gather Helpful Documents
    Many proclamation requests ask for an explanation about the request, information on the organization the request is for, and require sample language. Here are some resources to use for your proclamation request:
    • This letter that explains our goal in supporting National Payroll Week
    • This sample language for the official proclamation
    • Information about NPW and PayrollOrg
  4. Follow Up
    Once you’ve submitted your proclamation request, maintain correspondence with your contact by following up within two weeks to determine the status.

Once your proclamation has been accepted, be sure to write your elected official to thank them for their assistance and support of National Payroll Week! If you’re able to visit their offices for an official presentation, don’t forget to take pictures and share them with PayrollOrg and to social media with #payrollweek.

Helpful hint: Be sure to visit your officials’ website in advance. Many local governments now allow you to submit a simple proclamation request online.
