Mid-America Mensa’s new Board had its first meeting in April. We are hoping to reach out to new groups of people and generate interest across a more diverse background for potential members in 2022. We’ve also started planning a few events for our current members. If you would like to join up with us and/or become more involved with MAM, or if you’re just looking for more information about upcoming events, please feel free to reach out to us. ~ LocSec Curt Krambeck
