Message from our CEO Peter Last – May 2020

ECCQ has been playing an important role in representing and advocating for the needs of our multicultural communities and vulnerable people.

In these uniquely challenging times, we are all required to find new ways to address issues in our communities.  To identify areas for support, and to ensure diverse communities’ interests are upheld, I am an active participant in the following forums:

  • QLD Gov’t ‘COVID 19 Seniors Taskforce’ (Care Army Taskforce)
  • QLD Gov’t COVID 19 Seniors Taskforce Sub-Committee for CALD
  • QLD Gov’t Human and Social Recovery Committee
  • Queensland Health COVID-19 Working Group – Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities in Queensland
  • Connecting International Students Working Group
  • Vilification Law Reform Workgroup

Further, I wish to invite all members and community leaders to the conversation on strengthening social and economic recovery after COVID-19 in our upcoming special members meeting. I hope to see and hear from many of you on the day.

As always, if you have any specific concerns you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact me.
