The Cordamora/CMO position was created by the Board in November 2021, after accepting a proposal from the Amyrlin Seat Serinia Edoras and Keeper of the Chronicles Mieriana Souvra. There was a realization that the position of Keeper had two very different skill sets involved, as well as a huge workload that could not be accomplished by one person. Therefore, the Board created a new position to take on the membership skill set, versus the operational skill set that was kept by the Keeper position.
