Vice President of Communications and Membership
Helen Heath Thompson Mosher, CAE, is Vice President of Communications and Membership for the Council of Social Work Education. She has been producing print and online media for over 20 years, with fully three-quarters of that time devoted to becoming an association communications executive. An award-winning writer in the business-to-business publishing industry and at one time, a respected music stringer for the now-defunct Philadelphia City Paper, Mosher strongly believes that storytelling belongs front and center in any communications strategy.
She got her start in nonprofit communications in the university relations office of Temple University, and since 2004 has worked at associations and nonprofits in progressively responsible publications and communications roles. Among her accolades, she has been recognized by Association and Media Publishing and by Communications Concepts’ “APEX” awards for her writing as well as her expertise in web strategies and blog content management. She has received the top APEX award: a Grand Award, twice, for her oversight of association publications Advisor Today (with NAIFA in 2007) and SIGNAL Magazine (with AFCEA in 2011).
Helen is a graduate of Temple University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with honors in her major. She also was named outstanding graduate of her class at Lord Fairfax (now Laurel Ridge) Community College, where she earned an Associate in Arts and Science. She earned her Certified Association Executive Credential in 2021, and holds a certificate in Education for Ministry from the University of the South.
Helen is a passionate advocate for education and social justice. She lives in Northern Virginia with her family and two black cats.
