Tallahassee Area Mensa
Welcome to the home page of Tallahassee Area Mensa!
Tallahassee Area Mensa a local chapter of the High IQ Society, American Mensa. The Tallahassee
area serves Florida from the Apalachicola River east through Taylor County including part of
Madison County and even a bit of Dixie County. Our area is also the only area in all of Florida,
Region 10 of American Mensa, to include a portion of Georgia. For a full view of the area we
cover, visit our map.
Interested in joining Mensa? The only qualification for membership is a score at or above the
98th percentile on an approved IQ test. There are two different ways you can join. One is by
submitting evidence of scores from any of a number of approved intelligence tests that you have
already taken, or you can take the Mensa Admission Test. For more information about qualifying

Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Happy July! We are making some changes to bring ourselves into alignment with our bylaws. Some of that is
covered in the minutes from the ExComm meeting. One of the things we are exploring is sending an electronic
newsletter to anyone who wishes to receive the newsletter electronically instead of in print. There are some
advantages to electronic - it comes right to your email in-box, so you always know where it is, you can enjoy
color images, you can print it out if you wish to or save the paper and keep it electronic, and we can include
extra content if we wish to. Currently more than half of our members have opted for an electronic version. If
you are interested in switching, go to https://www.us.mensa.org/ and log in to your account. There you can update
preferences for newsletter delivery in your profile. We will continue to send out a print newsletter to anyone
who prefers that, but over the coming year the printed newsletter may be reduced in size and content to save money.
Also, as Thomas mentioned in his RVC column, our group is up and running on Mensa Connect. Want to share your
ideas? Voice your opinion? Carry on conversations with others in the group without ever leaving your house? Now
you can! All members of Tallahassee Area Mensa are already members of the online community, so it is ready and
waiting for you, just log in and post a message!
And last but not least a sincere thank you to Grant Logan, who has been instrumental in ensuring we had a published
newsletter each and every month for ten years thereby keeping us in compliance with the post office requirements as
well as our group's needs for a monthly newsletter. We are very grateful, Grant! Thank you for your years of dedicated
Hope to see you at an upcoming event,
