About JCQ

Do you have a great idea you want to pursue? Something you want to know? Need a little help?

We are a group of Japanese and Aussies who love Japan, here to support the Japanese community through our Japanese interests. We are a not-for-profit organisation providing mutual aid, cultural exchange, charity support and promoting friendships. Our aim is to create a place for all to come together, and to build a Japanese culture and education centre in Queensland.


RE: WAIVE the normal annual membership fee

To Members and Supporters of the Japan Community of Queensland Inc.,

We hope that you are safe and healthy in this challenging time.

The changes brought to society by COVID-19 have affected us all, as individuals, families, businesses, associations, communities and nations.

The Japan Community of Queensland Inc is no exception, but the association's management committee continues to meet to discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, share important information for the community in Japanese language through our online channels, and carry on the basic running of the association. We look forward to the time that we can recommence activities in support of JCQ's mission.

Our membership year rolls over on 1 July. Recognising that this is a very challenging time for our members, the JCQ management committee has decided to WAIVE the normal annual membership fee for all ordinary and corporate members for the 2020-2021 membership year. Your membership of JCQ will be automatically extended until 30 June 2021. If your personal details have changed, please contact us to update them, but otherwise there is nothing you need to do to maintain your membership.

If you are in a position to make a VOLUNTARY contribution to the running of the association, JCQ will gratefully accept any amount of money. We still have expenses for things like a post office box and insurances that are ongoing. Any contribution you can make as a VOLUNTARY membership fee will be valuable and important. To make such a contribution, email us at info@jcq.org.au and we will reply with payment details.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Stay safe. We look forward to seeing you at a Japanese community event in the not too distant future.
