Mistress Maria Christina de Cordoba, Kingdom Authorizations Clerk

As of Kingdom Twelfth Night, Æthelmearc has a new Authorizations Clerk: Mistress Maria Christina de Cordoba, who is returning to the office after having previously served as Kingdom Minister of the Lists and then taking a break of a few years. Mistress Tiercelin recently asked her some questions.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I join the SCA over 25 years ago in a small group (Shire of Riversmeet) in Charleston, WV. I have held several office since then, but my passion is working with the fighting community.

What’s the most important thing people should know about their authorization card?

The authorization card allows you to participate in combat activities within the SCA.

How much lead time should people give to get one when they send in the paperwork?

The form states 60 days, my aim is 10 business from the day I receive the completed form. However, it may take longer during peak times of the year.

Would you like stamps?

Yes please, it is not required but would be greatly appreciated.
