What is Mensa?

Mensa is for those who rejoice in the exercise of the mind. If you enjoy mental challenges and revel in the interplay of ideas, Mensa is an organization that will stretch your mind and expand your horizons.

Mensa is an international society that has one -- and only one -- unique qualification for membership: you must score in the top 2% of the population on a standardized IQ test.

Mensa does not hold any opinion or have, or express, any political or religious views.

A few updates for August! First there is no game night for August 26th. It has been remoted from the online calendar but it is is of course already in the printed MOTS so if you or someone you know plans to go to the August 26th game night, it is no longer happening. The only game night for August was on the 5th.

In addition there was an error with signing up for the regional gathering. The form did not function as intended with the new website. The registration is working again. Now the form is sent from the submitters e-mail address instead of the websites. The change is mostly harmless, but it will require anyone signing up online to be logged into an e-mail account and to hit the send button.

Mensa in Georgia has a brand new webpage to go along with its new online Google Calendar! Please bear with us as we work on usability issues.
