The Ceremonial Services Unit is responsible for processing all requests for ceremonial documents from the Mayor including proclamations, salutes, citations, certificates of appreciation, public service awards, greetings, congratulatory or condolence letters and other items of a ceremonial nature. The Mayor presents or sends these documents to individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies. The unit coordinates dozens of requests for documents each week, with the goal of timely availability for presentation at events throughout the District or publication in programs. The ceremonial services function has existed since the 1800s. The current Ceremonial Services Unit was officially created by Mayor's Order 91-192 on December 4, 1991, through the realignment of the Office of the Secretary.
