Chamber Roundup By Natalie O’Brien THE wife of prominent Labor councillor Keith Kwon has been appointed President of the Strathfield Chamber of Commerce for a second stint. Vivian Un Dok Pak, a lawyer and partner in the Strathfield legal firm KP Lawyers, was low-key about her reappointment last month and reluctant to speak about her vision for the Chamber without the members’ go-ahead. But she told the Scene she wanted to make the point that the Chamber is a committee which works together for a common goal. “It is not a one-man show,” she said. Ms Pak and her family are well known in the Korean community and around Strathfield, having held a raft of prominent public positions. Her husband Keith Kwon has served as Mayor and Deputy Mayor, and her brother Chol (Bruce) Pak and nephew Paul are sales agents with Strathfield Partners Real Estate Agents. Ms Pak is also one of the co-founders of the Friends of Comfort Women Association in Australia and was an organiser of a recent international conference in Homebush. The Chamber’s secretary Sue McDonald told the Federal Parliament House of Representatives Standing Committee on Petitions earlier this year that Ms Pak had been so concerned about the Korean women used as sexual slaves in World War Two, she believed the Australian government should pass a motion asking the Japanese government to formally apologise and address how the issue was taught in schools. Ms Pak is also a former vice-president of the Korean Society of Sydney, a recent Commissioner of the Community Relations Commission (CRC), former deputy chair of the Bendigo Bank Strathfield and legal advisor for the Korean Elderly Friendship Association Inc. Ms Pak counts as an ally State Labor MP and Arts Minister Virginia Judge, who, when congratulating her appointment to the CRC, told State Parliament Ms Pak was the first woman from a Korean background to be appointed to the Commission. The Office Bearers elected at the Strathfield Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting last month were: President: Vivian Pak from KP Lawyers Vice-President: Louise Devlin from Commonwealth Bank, Strathfield Secretary: Sue McDonald from Strathfield Consulting Services Board member: Cecile Arif from Jobfind Centre, Strathfield New President Vivian Pak at the chamber’s Christmas cocktail party
