Enjoy our Regional Gatherings
While American Mensa is broken into 10 "regions," each encompassing multiple Local Groups, a Regional Gathering, or RG, is actually the annual or biannual gathering of a single host group or team of groups. These events usually take place over a weekend and can attract Mensans from all over the country.
While some long-established RGs draw hundreds of attendees, most are much smaller. However, each RG usually features speakers; games; a Hospitality room with food, beverages and lots of socializing; and often a little something special, a signature program or activity that the host group injects into the event to make it their own.
Approximately 40 RGs are held every year, and all are fully planned and staffed by local volunteers.
