Region 1 Roundup

News from National:

LEAP Candidates for 2016
For 2016 the Leadership Exchange Ambassadors Program (LEAP) received 16 applications from
12 countries – Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Mexico, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States. After reading and viewing the materials sent by the applicants, the LEAP committee selected six ambassadors for 2016.

The group of future leaders will travel to the American Mensa’s 2016 Annual Gathering in San Diego (June 29 – July 3) and the European Mensas Gathering (EMAG) in Kraków, Poland (August 28-30) to present workshops on their leadership experience and innovative ideas that have helped their own Mensa grow and thrive.

Congratulations to all of our LEAP representatives and especially to Region1's Bill Zigo (Ziggy) who will be representing the United States.
