RVChat - April 2009
by Lori Norris

April Fools Day is upon us.  I haven't celebrated that in years.  I'll have to think of a good prank to pull on Ron this year since he won't be expecting it. 

Proctors are one of our most important assets in Mensa.  They are usually the first Mensan a potential member meets.  Proctors give up their valuable free time to administer tests and, occasionally, no one will show up.  Their service is greatly appreciated.  They are patient and friendly.  Does your group have a proctor who is especially wonderful?  April 18th is the deadline to nominate that person for the Proctor of the Year Award.  Last year, MoNNY's own Joe O'Malley was awarded that honor.  Also the Mensa Education and Research Foundation is seeking nominations for the Copper Black Award (self-nominations are welcome) and Distinguished Teach Award.  The deadline is April 15th.  Speaking of the Foundation, I was honored to be included as a judge in the regional scholarship judging event.  Does your group participate?

Speaking of MoNNY, preliminary plans are underway for them to host a Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) in fall 2009.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know.  The last LDW held here in Rhode Island in May 2008 was a success and I even learned a few (okay, many) things I was not aware of beforehand.  There's always something new to learn. 

Elections:  MIL and AML are both holding elections this year.  While I have already been declared elected as RVC1, the elections are still important as national officers are being elected and there are several important bylaws referendums.  Should you have any questions about the current election, you may contact the election committee or me and I will put you in touch with the appropriate person. 

Testing:  Do you know anyone who might qualify for membership but are a little bit shy about taking the test?  During the month of April, the home test is discounted by $5 and if they return the completed test by May 31, they'll receive a $5 off coupon for the Mensa Admission Test which will be valid until July 31.  Buy the home test in April, maybe a Mother's Day gift OR have your adult children take the test as a gift to you.

Upcoming Events:  Boston Mensa’s Cape Cod weekend will he held the second weekend of May.  Mind Games® will be held in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky the weekend of April 24 through 26.  It's not too late to think about attending, it's a great time for the gamer in your.
