Connect with other members
Being a member of American Mensa is about connecting with other members, those like minds who will challenge your opinions, embrace your interests, and yes, occasionally, get your jokes. One of the best ways to get involved in Mensa is to make those connections.
- Board contacts
The American Mensa Committee is American Mensa's board of directors. The members of the board and appointees of the board are listed here.
- Foundation trustees
The property and business of the Mensa Foundation is managed by the Board of Trustees, which supervises the disposition and solicitation of donations to the Foundation.
- Local Groups
As a member of American Mensa, you're also part of a smaller group based in your immediate area that hosts weekly programs and activities. Each Local Group is made up of individuals who provide an intellectual and social environment like no other.
- Member directory
American Mensa's online member directory provides information for members who have released that information for publication in an online or printed directory. This release information is collected via the Personal Data Questionnaire sent to members each year when they renew and via their online profiles.
- Mensa International
Today, there are around 110,000 Mensans in 100 countries throughout the world. There are active Mensa organizations in more than 40 countries on every continent except Antarctica. The Mensa International Web site is the first, best place to make connections with members around the world.
- Mensa on the Web
American Mensa provides and supports many official Internet communities, and members have created many other unofficial online Mensa-centric communities. As part of AML’s ongoing efforts to make it easier for members to interact socially and intellectually, we are providing links to many of these unofficial sites and services.
- National Office staff
The National Office of American Mensa, Ltd., located in Arlington, Texas, houses professional support staff for American Mensa and the Mensa Education & Research Foundation, supporting members, officers and volunteers of the organization.
- Officer directory
Our online directory of local officers is especially helpful for members looking for SIGHT contacts, for locating Area Coordinators within their groups, or for getting in touch with their LocSecs or Editors. The online officer directory is updated each business day!
- Officer eLists
A number of local offices have a dedication elist where officers can exchange ideas, talk and learn about the positions they hold. Each officer elist has a dedicated AMC liaison and staff liaison to assist in the administrative functioning of the elist. Some elists may be restricted to current, specific officers only, and others may allow past officers or all interested members to participate.
- Online Community
Online discussion boards, forums, threaded discussions, chat, friends... Read from over 100,000 topics, interact with members from around the country and around the world... Find all of this and more in American Mensa's online Community!
SIGHT allows members to enjoy the company and hospitality of Mensans from around this country and from more than 40 other countries.
- Special Interest Groups
Mensa has always encouraged members to congregate around their special interests. In recent years the total number of active special interest groups (SIGs) has varied between 130 and 160.
