Patronage Requests

The Governor and Professor Chalmers are patrons of many community organisations.

Requests for the Governor and/or Professor Chalmers to be patrons of your organisation should:

  • be made in writing and addressed to:
    The Official Secretary 
    Colonel David Hughes CSC
    Government House
    GPO Box 1574
  • provide background information about the organisation;
  • enclose a copy of the Constitution and latest annual financial report;
  • indicate the way in which the approach has been authorised (eg:  voted upon at the latest meeting; approved by the executive group, etc); and
  • indicate whether the Governor, Professor Chalmers or both are being sought as patron.

If patronage is accepted, it continues for the duration of the Governor’s term and is not renewed each year.
