Chicago Area Mensa Events


Chicago Area Mensa is also on! is a networking site that allows groups to share photos, plan and advertise events, share information, and a whole lot more! It’s easy to join the group by going to our Meetup page where you’ll be asked to provide your membership information and, once verified, you’ll be approved shortly.

And we’re also on Facebook, also as a closed group.

Upcoming Events

Look at the December or January Activities Bulletin to see the many events hosted by Chicago Area Mensa members. Although we do not post details of our events in the public section of this site, all the events are listed. Members are encouraged to see ChiMe or Chicago Mensa Meetup for further information. Occasionally an event coördinator misses the deadline for submitting the details to ChiMe, someone will organize an event after the deadline, or changes occur after publication. This website will be updated to reflect the most current information available whenever possible. Then members will be able to get the details via a link that will be provided. Members are also encouraged to sign up for the Event email list to get emails about upcoming events, including any that did not make it into ChiMe, and to get notified of any special events or last minute changes. All Chicago Mensa events are also posted on Chicago Mensa Meetup. And because it is so easy to organize an impromptu event in Chicago Mensa Meetup, members may decide to post something fun to do and then, in addition to the regularly scheduled events, any member who has joined Meetup will also get notified of the upcoming event.

Monthly Gathering

The January Monthly Gathering will be held at the
Rolling Meadows Community Center,
3705 Pheasant Dr., Rolling Meadows, IL 60008

Future MGs will be at different locations.

The most publicly accessible event is our Monthly Gathering. Usually we have a guest lecturer and then people mingle and/or play games while munching on some snacks. Beverages are also provided. The atmosphere is very informal and guests are welcome. If you're interested in joining and just want to meet some Chicago area Mensans, come to one of the Monthly Gathering. If you’ve decided to join, the Mensa test is usually administered before the gathering. For more information about this event, click here.
