Welcome to Greater Phoenix Mensa

We're B-a-a-a-a-ack! Most of GPM's in-person events have resumed.

If you have any questions about resumption of GPM events, contact the event host listed in the calendar. ExCom meetings are being held using Zoom. All members are welcome to join these virtual meetings. Details may be found in the GPM Calendar. Event hosts have been encouraged to schedule events using Zoom. These will be promoted in the GPM Live Web Calendar and eUpdate. Details HERE.

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.

The 2022-23 Scholarship Program will be underway September 15th. Visit our Scholarships page for details on how ANYONE heading to college or a certificate program can write an essay and have a chance to get one. We will also need GPM Member judges for those essays. Get more info HERE.

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?
