- In a world that is large, fast-paced, extremely busy, and impersonal, Mensa offers community: a small group of people who have something in common, enjoy each other’s company, and care about each other. I know that if I had to move to another part of the country, I could immediately find another welcoming group of possible friends.
- We’re a diverse group of people – all ages, professions, backgrounds, ethnicities, and interests. And we have a multitude of Special Interest Groups (SIG’s) as a result. But we have one common trait – high intelligence.
- We’re an elite organization: only 2% of the world qualifies, and YOU would be part of it!
- The Mensa community is full of people who get your jokes. No need to explain things 5 times, slowly and carefully — we get what you’re saying the first time and can add to it. We can also tell if you’re blowing smoke, so have your facts right, but don’t be afraid to brainstorm — we’re great at that!
- NNJ Mensa has many local events to connect and stimulate with members. In addition, Mensans host over 40 Regional Gatherings (RG’s), where members from across the country meet for a weekend of activities, speakers, entertainment, and hospitality.
- We also give you discounts for buying stuff.
