Regional Gatherings

While American Mensa is broken into “regions,” each encompassing multiple Local Groups, an RG is actually the gathering of a Local Group — perhaps annually or biennially . In this sense, a true “Regional Gathering” of all the local groups that fall within a designated American Mensa region does not exist. Also, please note not all Local Groups hold an RG.

Confusing, eh?

Every year or two (sometimes less often), MWW hosts or co-hosts a Regional Gathering. In 2011, instead of hosting a Regional Gathering, we were pleased to co-host the Annual Gathering with Oregon Mensa.

In 2017, we hosted the Emerald City Regional Gathering, Return to Oz. And we more recently hosted our 2018 Emerald City RG, Where Magic Can Happen.

In 2021 we will host the Emerald City Regional Gathering, Find the Emerald Lining on March 5-7 in a virtual (online) format.

For more information about the current RG, please see the Facebook event page at
