Gatherings

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

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 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?

So, that said, every year or two, MWW hosts or co-hosts a Regional Gathering.

The Annual Gathering is the yearly national gathering for American Mensa. Locations rotate each year. And, last year, instead of hosting a Regional Gathering, we were pleased to co-host the 2011 AG with Oregon Mensa.

Our local Monthly Gathering is held on the third Saturday of each month. The exception is March, when it moves to the fourth Saturday. The MGs feature speakers on a variety of subjects and are open to the public.
