Chattanooga Mensa

Let's get involved in our community while also getting to know our fellow members more by participating in Mensa Cares! This is a program that fits right in with America's National Volunteer Day (April 29th), but even better, it relies on the creativity and interests our local group/members.

About Us

Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr. Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for membership of which was a high IQ. The society welcomes people from every walk of life whose IQ is in the top 2% of the population, with the objective of enjoying each other's company and participating in a wide range of social and cultural activities. Mensa has three stated purposes: to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity, to encourage research in the nature, characteristics and uses of intelligence, and to promote stimulating intellectual and social opportunities for its members.
