Cancellation of Local Group Events Held in Public Venues

Out of concern for the well-being of our members and in an effort to retard the spread of COVID-19, the Charlotte/Blue Ridge Mensa Executive Committee made a decision to cancel all local group events held in public venues through the end of April.

For events held at members’ homes (History SIG, Gourmet SIG, Book Club), it will be left to the discretion of the hosts of those events as to whether those events will continue as scheduled.

The next ExComm meeting is scheduled for April 11th. At that time, we will reassess the situation and determine when we feel it will be feasible to resume our regular events.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Welcome to the Charlotte Blue Ridge chapter of American Mensa, the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. We are a non-profit organization open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence test. Mensa formally comprises national groups and the umbrella organization Mensa International, with a registered office in Caythorpe, Lincolnshire, England. The word mensa means “table” in Latin, as is symbolized in the organization’s logo, and was chosen to demonstrate the round-table nature of the organization; the coming together of equals.
