Mike Moss, CAE, serves as president at the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP). His primary responsibility is working with the board of directors on the alignment and execution of the society’s strategic plan. In collaboration with the members of the SCUP Council, he works to create an environment at SCUP where members from all planning types can come together to share experiences and solve their stickiest challenges, together.
Moss started his non-profit management journey in 1992, when he accepted his first job at the Saginaw Bay Watershed Council. Since then he has worked in two state associations and two international associations, with responsibilities in learning, operations, human resources, IT, strategic partnerships, and member services. His international assignments have given him the opportunity to work in 15 countries across North American and South America, Europe, and Asia. Moss is an active volunteer in supporting association management organizations through board service, facilitation of strategic planning processes, and teaching strategy and governance courses.
Since the early days of internet threads, Moss starts each and every day reading the latest on the heavy metal music world and tracking his favorite bands. Metallica is required daily listening for Moss and whoever has to sit next to him at the office. As a lifelong runner and avid gardener, he enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and son and their amazing dog, Annie.
