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.

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.
