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.

To learn more about our Local Groups leadership, size, and geography see our listing on the American Mensa site here.

Local Group Events

Out of concern for the well-being of our members and in an effort to retard the spread of COVID-19, all local group events will be electronic until further notice. We’ve added virtual events hosted by other local groups to the calendar as well to provide more variety and to help you stay connected.

If you haven’t been able to attend the virtual events, click on the YouTube link below to see what you’ve been missing.

We hope to see you at one of our events!
