Mensa Gatherings

Mensa Gatherings are a great way to meet other Mensans and get to know members in other areas. Regional Gatherings (RGs) are a great place to meet good neighbours. Annual Gatherings (AGs) happen once a year and bring together Mensans from all over. Gatherings range from 2 to 200 people in Canada, with American AGs in the USA averaging about 2000 participants, and more worldwide. It is a great way to meet new friends, explore other cities and expand your mind.
