April 2017 Region 1 Newsletter
by Lisa Maxwell

Region 1 Roundup – April 2017

News from National:
It is election time once again. American Mensa conducts its election of officers for the American Mensa Committee (the board of directors): Chair, First Vice-Chair, Second Vice-Chair, up to 10 Regional Vice-Chairs, the Secretary and Treasurer.

Voting begins on April 15, 2017, and extends through midnight, Central time, on May 31. American Mensa members who are current as of April 1, 2017, are eligible to vote. Those members will receive election notifications and ballots via email and will cast ballots online. (Members should verify that the email address on file is current.) Members without an email address on file will receive a paper ballot in the mail. If you have an email address but need to receive election materials by mail instead, review your election material preferences, checking the option to receive those materials in print.

Eligible American Mensa members may also participate in the Mensa International election, whose voting period is April 15 - May 15, 2017. For more information: https://www.us.mensa.org/lead/amc/elections/

Please take the time to review all of the candidate's statements and bios, and participate in the election process - make your voice heard - vote!

Around the Region (and beyond):
As I write this month's column, I am sitting in the hospitality suite at the Snowball RG hosted by Central New Jersey Mensa. It is 7:00am - I'm tired, a bit hung over and so very happy to have the opportunity to spend some time with 200+ other Mensans. This is my other family, a place where I can be myself and just enjoy life. Why aren't you here?

Just a reminder… Upcoming Region 1 events:
A Whale Of A Good Time! May 12-14, 2017
Join Boston Mensa on beautiful Cape Cod for a relaxing, unstructured weekend of socializing and hospitality with old friends and new. Visit Provincetown, enjoy great seafood, go whale watching, antiquing, bicycling, or just sit back and listen to the ocean. Play games while overlooking the sea. Enjoy drinks on an oceanfront deck.
