We will plan to hold a session instead on Saturday, January 26th at 10:00 am at Johnson County Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th Street, Overland Park, KS, in conference room #3. Please let Rhonda Johnston know if you have any questions or wish to reserve a place at this session.

News & Notes

Part of my responsibility in being your MAM web editor is to communicate results, to help show an outcome. It could only boost what may be considered the ‘interpersonal’ side of this website, right? Well, let me apply a lens to what has been happening across Mid-America Mensa recently. This is what I see as some news and a few notes:

First, the voting on the Bylaws Revisions has concluded and the new changes have passed with ‘flying colors’ according to the committee Chairperson. Thus, the new Mid-America Mensa Bylaws are approved and will be published in the Mension soon.

Next, MAM’s website has been moved to a new server. A new theme has also been swapped in. Both of these changes are giving the website a fresher look and more robust feel to it. If you see something you like here — or maybe even anything you don’t like — then you can surely let us know about it.

Finally, the full slate of 2019-2020 MAM Board nominees were elected by acclamation as all positions were filled by one, and only one, nominee. These results, and changes to the governance of Mid-America Mensa, will be published in the Mension soon as well.

November Mensa Testing

We currently have the following testing session scheduled:

Saturday, November 10, 2018 10:00 am

Central Resource Library
Johnson County Library                                                     
9875 W. 87th St
Overland Park, KS

The testing session will be held in conference room number two. Please arrive 10 or 15 minutes early to fill out a registration form.

Please do call or email me to reserve your place for testing. If this session is not convenient, please let me know so I can inform you of future test dates or arrange a testing date to fit your schedule.

The standard tests administered are the Wonderlic Personnel Test and the Reynolds Adaptable Intelligence Test. A score at or above the 98th percentile on either test qualifies you for Mensa membership. We will supply all necessary testing materials. Calculators and other mechanical devices are not permitted. Please be advised that if you have taken either of these tests before with the Mensa organization you may not take them again. Candidates under 14 years of age should contact me for additional information as these tests are not calibrated for that younger age range. A parent’s signature is required if you are under the age of 18.

You will need a photo ID and the $60 fee may be paid by cash, check, or credit or debit card at the time of the test. Smoking is not allowed in the library. Drinks in closed containers are allowed.

If English is not your primary language, or if any conditions make testing difficult, please contact me to discuss other testing options. A Culture Fair battery of tests is available, but must be scheduled individually.

If you have questions that I have not addressed, or if you would like to arrange to take the test at a different time, please drop me an email or give me a call. I will be glad to help.

If you would like to gain a better understanding of the testing process before you commit to a full test, you might like to try the Mensa Practice Test. It is also possible to qualify for Mensa membership by submitting evidence from previously admitted qualifying tests.

Thanks for your interest in Mensa.
