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
to join, visit the Join Mensa page.
Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
June is bustin' out all over, along with the requisite heat and humidity and the annual escape to
points cooler. If you plan to travel this summer to some location a bit less hot and humid, I hope you
travel safely and have a wonderful time.
I have recently been contacted by a casting producer from Who Wants to be a Millionaire asking if we
have any Mensa members in the Tallahassee area who might be interested in being a contestant. If anyone
is interested, just let me know and I will send you the information.
The National office is working to update the information on our members. The information provided
helps to feed the demographics reports as well as helping members find other members with certain skills
or abilities or areas of expertise. The information is all self-reported and you can control what
information is shared and what isn't. Now is a great time to log in to the National site
(https://www.us.mensa.org/login) and under the My Mensa
header select My Membership Profile. Once there you can update your contact information; add a photo that
will show up in the forums (if you wish); add/update any social media accounts you may have; add/update
any web sites you may have; update your education, areas of expertise, and interests. Under the
Communication Preferences section you can update if you are interested in receiving the newsletter
electronically or in hard copy print (currently about half of our members have opted for an electronic
version); select which of your pieces of information should display for others to see; opt out of
promotional and "other partner" communications; and select specific communications you do (or do not)
wish to receive. If you haven't updated your information and profile in a while, now would be a great
time to do it.
We will be holding an ExComm meeting on June 2 after the trip to the museum downtown in order to finish
dealing with an issue that was raised during the last ExComm meeting. These meetings are open to all members,
so you are welcome to attend if you are interested in hearing about the issue and weighing in on it.
Hope to see you at an event soon!
