Secure an FBLA Week Proclamation

If you wish to try and secure an FBLA Week Proclamation, here is suggested wording you might consider using the following wording.

You can reach out to your local municipalities (cities, townships, boroughs, etc.); your school boards; your county commissioners, etc.  What would be really great to see groups of chapters in the same county join together to seek a proclamation from the county commissioners and have representatives from the chapters present at the meeting where the proclamation will be approved.
