WeeM 2017

HalloweeM 43: Ready for Prime Time

'WeeM starts this Thursday! Join over 500 Mensans here in Chicago for an amazing, long, family-friendly weekend. Our Regional Gathering (RG) is the largest and the program offers plenty of variety to stimuate your mind, plenty of games and contests to challenge you, and many opportunitys to have fun, dance, converse and just enjoy yourself. Many of the pun-tastic costume parade entries will make you laugh (or groan). Meals, snacks, and beverages are included with the exception of dinner on Saturday. Click here for all the details.

Mensans, please come and register at the event if you haven't already done so. You don't want to miss the terrific program and this incredibly fun experience.

Volunteer now!

It's Halloween and you want to dress up and go to a party, of course. The stars have aligned this year and this is a fun opportunity to join the largest Halloween party by attending our RG Friday, October 26th . See great costumes, participate in the contest (best & worst pun, traditional, etc), enjoy a delicious meal, imbibe if you like, meet Mensans from all over the country (even some from across the oceans), and dance the night away. It's the perfect party!

By clicking on any of the menu items on the left, you can access all the information that is of particular interest to Chicago Area Mensa members. Most of the information is publicly viewable, but those that contain personal information, such as phone numbers and addresses, require your Mensa e‑mail address and password.

In the public section, you’ll find information about Chicago Area Mensa officers past and present, and Service Awards.
