Mensa is an international organization established to promote friendship and communication between its members. The sole requirement for membership is a score at or above the 98th percentile on any of a variety of standardized intelligence tests (for more details, see How to Join).

Mensa began in Britain in 1946, and American Mensa, Ltd., founded in 1960, has become the largest of the Mensa national organizations. Mensa has three purposes, which are outlined in its constitution. They are:

  1. To identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity.
  2. To encourage research into the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence.
  3. To provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members.

2014 Annual Gathering - Boston, MA

2013 Mensa AG

July 2-6, 2014

Go ahead and stare into the Brilliance of Beantown. Not blinding but enlightening, the city and its place in American history are formidable, of course, but Boston also wears the 21st century well.

From its downtown core to the outlying areas, Boston is a city with something for everyone: history and high technology, academic excellence and neighborhood ethnicity, financial prominence and sports enthusiasm, scientific achievements and a thrilling cultural scene. This mix of Colonial charm and urban sophistication is almost completely surrounded by water, with the Atlantic Ocean on two sides and the Charles River running alongside the back side of the city.

Boston is a perfect place for shoppers, restaurant connoisseurs and people who simply enjoy visiting the sites around town.
