About Rochester Area Mensa

RAM 101

Rochester Area Mensa (RAM) provides a fun and stimulating social environment for its members and a forum for intellectual exchange.  We are Rochester's local chapter of Mensa International Limited — the world's oldest and largest high-IQ society — whose sole qualification for membership is a score in the top 2% on any of almost 200 standardized IQ tests.  Rochester Area Mensa offers you an opportunity to join other like-minded people for engaging conversations, witty banter, interesting activities, and productive collaboration.

RAM wants you to become a member.  When you come on board, you'll receive a subscription to the national Mensa Bulletin, special membership benefits and privileges including travel discounts and more, and the opportunity to join diverse Special Interest Groups (SIGs).  As a member, you can attend Annual Gatherings (AGs) and Regional Gatherings (RGs) which include special tours, invigorating activities, and exciting guest speakers

RAM social events held locally and those designed for regional and national participation ALL provide an opportunity to interact with compatible people and converse with intellectually aligned individuals.  Rochester Area Mensans will also receive a subscription to the monthly local newsletter, The Constellation, which includes important chapter information such as event listings, officer contact information, and official RAM business.

Your talent determines what you can do.  Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do.  Your attitude determines how well you do it.

Mensa's purposes are: to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity; to encourage research into the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence; and to provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members. ~ from the Constitution of Mensa

As an organization, Mensa has no opinions.  Mensa has no ideological, philosophical, political, or religious views or affiliations.

But as individuals, we tend to make up for it:  Mensans usually have two or more opinions on any given topic.  Bright people have the ability to view almost any issue from several perspectives, often simultaneously.
