Like many organizations, American Mensa grew from a volunteering culture; it's truly a grassroots organization as many of our members get involved, interact and help their communities at the local level.
You may have reasons of your own for volunteering at any level of the organization, and it's important to realize that you really do get out of the Mensa what you put into it! Perhaps you have a skill set to share with your Local Group, a Special Interest Group or on a national committee. Maybe you'd like to gain leadership skills, contribute to the greater good, or to make an impact within the organization. Of course, you may just be new to the area and want to make friends, and that's OK, too. Mensa truly is what you make of it.
We hope you'll make a difference today by volunteering at the local, regional or national level. You can start by contacting your Local Group via our officer directory, and if you're a member and would like to participate in other areas of the organization, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your volunteer and skills CV.
