To assist ongoing programs, American Mensa offers volunteers the opportunity to participate as officers or appointees in several areas that require additional approvals.
- Food safety
Many Mensa gatherings provide food prepared by members. To ensure the well-being of our gathering attendees, at least one member of the Hospitality Committee for each AG, RG, LDW and Colloquium must complete a food safety course prior to the gathering or workshop.
- Gifted Youth Coordinators
American Mensa can provide a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for Young Mensans and relatives of adult members and their minor guests. Creative activities for children begin with the interest shown by Local Groups and are usually led by Gifted Youth Coordinators.
Proctors are often the first members with whom prospects have contact and, therefore, may influence prospects’ perceptions of Mensa. They are charged with ensuring that Mensa’s supervised tests are administered fairly and accurately and are certified to work under the license of Mensa’s supervisory psychologist (unless they themselves are licensed psychologists).
- SIGHT Coordinators
SIGHT Coordinators serve traveling Mensans worldwide by connecting them with local Mensans to provide information, guidance and hospitality. Your fellow local members can suggest local hot spots, share travel tips, provide Local Group activity information, or find accommodations.
