Gatherings

Mensa conventions are called gatherings. Our gatherings in the United States come in three flavors: Annual (AG), Regional (RG), and Monthly (MG).

Annual Gatherings

The Annual Gathering (AG), is the yearly national gathering for American Mensa. This event is always held in early July, and is in a different U.S. city each year. Since the first event in 1963, Annual Gatherings have brought Mensans together from around the country and around the world. The next Annual Gathering will be held from July 5th to July 9th, 2017,  at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, Florida.

Regional Gatherings

American Mensa comprises 10 regions, and each region is made up of several local groups. Mensa of Western Washington (MWW) is part of Region 8, also called the Pacific Intermountain region, which covers the northwest corner of the country. A Regional Gathering (RG) is actually the annual or biannual gathering of a local group. A true RG of all the local groups that fall within a designated American Mensa region does not exist, and not all local groups hold an RG. Confusing, eh?

Mensa of Western Washington is hosting a Regional Gathering in 2017.
