What is a Regional Gathering?
Each weekend-long Regional Gathering, or RG, usually features speakers; games; a Hospitality room with food, beverages and lots of socializing; and often a little something special, a signature program or activity that the hosting local group injects into the event to make it their own.
While some long-established RGs draw hundreds of attendees, most are much smaller. (Snowball gets a few hundred.)
Approximately 40 RGs are held around the US every year, and all are planned and staffed by local volunteers.

What is Mensa?
Mensa is an international society with only one requirement for membership: a score in the top 2 percent on a standardized IQ test. Mensa follows no political agenda and holds no opinions, but rather serves two purposes:
(1) as a social organization, it provides a means of assembly and communication for its members, and
(2) under the auspices of MERF (Mensa Education and Research Foundation), Mensa promotes research and understanding in the area of human intelligence.
