OFFER AN INVOCATION AT A BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING

The Board of Supervisors makes it a policy to invite anyone in the County of Tulare to voluntarily offer an invocation before the beginning of its meetings, to solemnize the occasion. If you wish to offer an invocation, please Register.

Individuals/organizations are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve, or another random basis. All requests must include: (1) the name of the individual leading the invocation, (2) the name of the organization if any that the individual represents, and (3) the contact information of the individual and/or organization that will lead the invocation. Please register for your preferred date(s) or state your preferred dates in your request to the Clerk of the Board. By registering to provide an invocation, you agree to adhere to the requirements set forth in the County of Tulare's Policy for Invocations at Meetings of the Board of Supervisors.

We appreciate your cooperation in providing an invocation that will have equal value to all listeners. Invocations must be designed for the benefit of the Board of Supervisors and should not be directed or be an instruction to those in attendance or the general public. Invocations should be no more than approximately one and a half minutes in length. The idea of invocation is personal and may involve the expression of your own convictions, beliefs and wishes; however, remember that the invocation commences a public meeting and therefore please speak to topics pertinent to the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board.
