Sentergroup is thrilled to welcome Jim Weinland as Director of Membership Services.

With 10 years of experience in a variety of roles — including membership development, diversity and student programming, social media and digital communications, chapter relations, and event planning — Jim comes to us well-equipped to drive membership growth in our client organizations.

As Director of Membership Services, Weinland will build member value and customer satisfaction, as well as develop, manage, and implement all recruitment, engagement, and retention campaigns.

“Jim brings strategy and innovation to our growing team,” says Craig Sondalle, Sentergroup President. “After leading membership development and customer service center teams at a professional association with a large membership, Jim is uniquely positioned to take our association clients to the next level. We’re very excited to have him on board.”

After beginning his career at the Friends of Cleveland School of the Arts, a small nonprofit charged with fundraising and event coordination for a performing arts school, Jim moved to Chicago and into the association management field, where he has served both the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Academy of General Dentistry.

“Sentergroup’s unique collaborative environment and commitment to innovation offers a great opportunity to make a difference with our members,” says Weinland. “At the end of the day, our goal is to solve problems and help people.”

Jim grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University in 2004.
