I wasn’t serving when this decision was made, but I can see why it’s important. The need for a CA is to have some oversight on external communications, as any organization would want. It’s important that when a statement is made, it’s made by the appropriate officer, on the appropriate channels. The board needs to be able to freely discuss and develop new ideas, work through problems, and decide the appropriate time and place to make those decisions and announcements public. Without it, we have chaos and confusion.
