Message:  I am requesting a copy of the procedures and policies related to invocations presented at County meetings. 

If no policy/procedure exists, the answers to the following questions:

What criteria is used to determine who will be invited to give an invocation? 
How are the people contacted? 
Please include a copy of the standard correspondence that is used to invite participation. (this is not a request for a copy of every correspondence sent, just the standard correspondence used to invite participation, if there is a recommended format.)
What instructions are given to anyone giving an invocation?
What is the amount of time allocated for the invocation?
What is the restriction on how many times the same person can give an invocation in a calendar year?
How often is the list of eligible participants updated?
Is there a designated substitute if the scheduled person is unable to attend?
Is there a disclaimer on any printed agenda distributed at meetings that the commission does not endorse any particulate religious view? I have reviewed the agendas available online and did not find a disclaimer included.

Thank you for your time and effort in responding to this request.
