Annie Crowley holds the position of Vice Chair on the SHIFT Board and comes to The Shift Project with 11 years’ experience working with a number of boards.


Annie sat on the Australian Subscription Television and Radio Association (ASTRA) board for seven years and chaired the ASTRA Technical and Planning Committee for ten years. ASTRA is the peak body representing the subscription media industry in Australia. It manages codes of practice, distributes ratings data, organises awards and conferences, and represents the industry with regulators, government and the media.


Annie also sat on the Byron Aged Care (BAC) Board for four years, a not-for-profit community owned facility, run by a voluntary board, where she held the position of Treasurer in the last year. In February 2015, the BAC board and Alzheimer’s Association of Queensland negotiated a successful merger of both organisations. BAC now operates under the guidance of the Alzheimer’s Association Queensland board.

Annie has over 20 years’ experience in the media and communications industry, both in managing the Optus Satellite executive sales team and as a one-on-one business coach.


In the last six years Annie had been an active member of Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) as a wildlife rescuer. She also holds the position of liaison officer between National Parks and Wildlife Service and WIRES in the Northern Rivers region.


Annie’s vision is to see The SHIFT Project continue to grow so that it can reach many more vulnerable people who are unable to access mainstream services on their own.


“The education and support offered to those touched by The Shift Project is designed to enable individuals to seek personal solutions to rebuild their lives and determine their own pathways to a better future, changing their lives for the better.”
