Dana Hines, CFRE
Vice President, Membership Marketing
Hi, I am Dana … I have been involved in the membership marketing field since the beginning of time. I was a membership manager at a botanical garden and that job and all the fun marketing that was involved with that job lit a fire in me to start Membership Consultants that delivered membership marketing services to other membership organizations. In the summer of 2018, my team joined Gabriel Group. For the past 30 years, we have been helping membership programs grow and succeed using direct mail, digital marketing and face to face sales. We do good work for organizations with amazing missions, like inspiring people through art, saving plant and animal species and generally, making the world a better place for all of us to live and flourish!
When I am not in the office, I enjoy gardening, hanging out with friends, visiting beaches, watching sunsets, drinking wine and most of all, I LOVE baseball!
My first job was as a PBX operator (answered phones) at a local bank and trust company in high school and college (one ringy dingy, two ringy dingy, just like Ernestine aka Lily Tomlin).
As a child, I wanted to grow up to be an elevator operator, but there were too many ups and downs, so I found a more grounded profession!
