RVChat - February 2011
Happy Groundhog Day, Boy Scout Day, Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year, etc. Lots of reasons to celebrate in February, including Ron and my anniversary (10 years and counting). We were married at the local Rhode Island courthouse and then showed up at the New Hampshire Regional Gathering with a wedding cake. We had a truly unusual courtship (at least according to non-Mensa standards) as we met at a Boston Mensa RG, bumped into each other at a NH RG, and then started dating at a NJ RG with a second date at the GNYM RG. Not only did much of our pre-marriage time involve Mensa events, but our married life includes a lot of Mensa socializing. We know many Mensan couples. Mensa is not a match-making organization; however, when singles gather with others of similar intelligence and interests, sparks may fly (and I’m not talking about the microwave experiments held at the Mensa Canada Annual Gathering in 2009).

The AMC (American Mensa Committee, your national board of directors) is deliberating which of the Governance Task Force suggestions should be considered. It is now the job of the AMC to move forward and decide which suggestions should be sent to the next task force (Governance Blueprint Task Force) for further development. While the AMC is not formally seeking membership comment at this point, I would like to solicit additional input from “my” members. So take a look at the Governance Task Force report (found on the Inside AML; 2010-11 Meeting Reports) and e-mail me your comments (firstname.lastname@example.org).
