Welcome to Greater Phoenix Mensa

What's all this about Mensa?

Mensa was created to figure out what intelligence is, what to do with it for the benefit of humanity, and to feed the minds and the spirits of its members intellectually and socially.

Local Groups like ours carry on that tradition ... we meet and talk and discuss and make and do things that help identify and foster intelligence, whatever form it takes ... creating stimulating intellectual and social environments that, let it be said, are frequently well fed and agreeably lubricated.

And at a higher level, all of Mensa is deeply, hands-on involved with programs for gifted children, literacy, and scholarships.

So. Come for the brightness. Come for the parties. Come for the outrageous humor. Come for the outreach and humanity. Whatever floats your boat, GPM has it for you.

How can I be involved in the FUN?

Involvement in GPM can range from attending events that appear in our calendar in the sidebar to serving on the committees or hosting to make them possible. You joined Mensa for a reason. If that reason was to do stuff with other smart people, here’s how. Check out the Live Calendar or go HERE to see where and how you can FIT IN.

GPM Forum Returns!

Reserve your 2nd Saturday mornings for the return of our monthly Forum. Forum Chair Dick Morris has scheduled programs with full details on our GPM Forum 2024 web page. These will start at 10:00 AM at one of the branches of the Phoenix Public Library. We will also gather afterwards at a nearby restaurant for our Post-Forum Debriefing that you have enjoyed in the past.

Here's what we're planning for the next ExCom Meeting

GPM Members: to see the Agenda click HERE.
The ExCom’s purpose is to make GPM what you want it to be. It’s your chapter. If there’s something you’d like to see GPM do please say so in an email to locsec@phoenixmensa.org and it’ll go on the agenda.
But there’s a catch. If you want to put something on the agenda you have to show up at the ExCom meeting, no-show no discussion, and be prepared to answer five questions:
1) What’s the opportunity or problem you want to address?
2) What do you want done about it?
3) What’s your best guess on what it will cost?
4) How will it be promoted?
5) Who’s going to do it?
