The 34th Annual General Meeting of the Cherrybrook Chinese Community Association was held on Wednesday 30th August 2023
President Kwok Chau started the meeting by giving a welcome speech.
It was then followed by the adaptation of the Minutes of the 33rd Annual General Meeting and the 2022-2023 Financial Report.
At the meeting, executive members of the association from 2023-2024 were elected and the positions were elected by the new members. The result is as follows:
Our Chinese language school is now accepting enrollment for 2023 from kindergarten to adult classes.
At the Annual General Meeting this year, Kwok Ling Chau, also known as K.L., was elected as the President for 2020-2021.
In response to feedback from member during the AGM who would like to know more about the new president, here is a brief about him.
K.L. was our Hon Secretary since 2017. Members who participated in programs, such as, EYD, Chinese Opera Singing Group and Chinese Language School would have met him face-to-face. He was a member of the CCCA since 1995, but was unable to serve the community until 2017 due to personal and work commitments.
Married with two children, K.L. migrated to Australia with the family from Hong Kong in 1987. Since then he worked with Overseas Telecommunication Commission (OTC), a federal organisation, as the engineering manager responsible for design and upgrade of maritime shore-to-ship radio communications system around 13 coast radio stations in Australia.
In 1993, OTC merged with Telecom Australia, he ended up working as the project manager carrying design and construction of critical radio communications system for use by first responders, such as police, fire and ambulance until 2013.
K.L. looks forward to meeting all the members and friends face-to-face, hopefully in the not-too-distant future.
In order to improve the efficiency of managing the Cherrybrook Chinese Community Association Inc., the Management Committee convened on 23 September 2017, have decided that all sub-groups’ (including Seniors Group) activities will now be directly managed, coordinated, organised, facilitated and financed by the Management Committee.
This edict will take effect immediately.
