MWW Demographics

More than 1200 members enjoy the benefits of belonging to Mensa of Western Washington. As a local group of American Mensa, which in turn is a national member of International Mensa, we are a diverse bunch enjoying a wide range of interests and activities:

  • Literature and words
  • Music
  • Games
  • Computers
  • Outdoor sports
  • Business ventures
  • Psychology
  • Arts and crafts
  • Lifestyles
  • Science
  • Hobbies
  • Education

We hold a Monthly Gathering that is open to the public and provides a good place to meet some of our members.

We occasionally host or co-host a Regional Gathering, and in 2011 we will be co-hosting the Annual Gathering, a national event with Oregon Mensa.

Activities hosted by members in their homes are open only to MWW members and their invited guests. Some of our favorite special interest groups that are restricted to members include various Games Nights, Movie Night, Science SIG, Poker SIG, Pensa (a writing group), Dining Out SIG, and the notorious but benign and supportive Women’s Bathroom SIG (there’s an amusing story behind that name).
