Hi Barbara. Welcome to the PRIDE program.
A local can submit a PRIDE proposal at any time. We like to get the proposals at least 30 days before the first event; however, if something pops up that a local didn't know about, we can approve things ASAP. Most locals do submit a year's worth of activities in Juneish, but some submit things throughout the year.
We will not start accepting September 2013 proposals until Juneish.
You can shoot me an email any time with your questions. I'll give you my cell # too.
