Press Release – 4 November 2016
Craig Crowley MBE, chief executive of Action Deafness, was appointed chair of the UK Council on Deafness at its AGM on 2 November. Craig succeeds Jim Edwards, who took up the position in 2010.
The AGM was part of the Council’s annual conference, which this year celebrated the power of collaboration. Groups of presenters explained how their cooperation had brought about benefits for people who are deaf or have a hearing loss.
Jim Edwards said: “I am delighted to announce Craig is the new chair of the Council. His appointment comes at an exciting time, with the sector working more collaboratively than ever before. His involvement with the initiative to define a common purpose means he is well placed to take up the reins.”
Craig said: “Jim’s six year stewardship of the Council is much appreciated. In particular, he made sure we kept challenging ourselves. The Board and I look forward to continuing what he worked so hard to begin.”
