Membership cards changes

Over the years the production of membership cards each year has incurred a heavy load on our resource.  Also the cost of producing the cards has increased year on year.

With the availability of technology it has been decided to replace all membership cards by QR codes.

Each member will be sent a code which is unique to the person.  

The code can then be scanned by the association to identify the member similar to the physical card in the past.

The rollout of the QR code will start from 2021 as members renew their membership. It will then be gradually distributed to other members who have multi-year or lifetime memberships.

In the meantime please ensure that the association has your correct email address and mobile number on record.

About the New President

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.
