Region 1 Roundup - July 2016
Region 1 Roundup
by Lisa Maxwell
As you read this in late June/early July, the 2016 AG (Annual Gathering) is underway in San Diego, CA. There are so many options for AG attendees that it can be challenging to fit them all into the five days - events, speakers, tours, games and tournaments, LDWs (Leadership Development Workshops) and the Leadership Summit, award ceremonies, board, business and committee meetings, meet and greets (for SIGs, regions, leadership positions and more), and of course hospitality (a place to sit and visit with friends, grab a bite to eat or a drink and just take it all in).
BTW – there’s an app for that! This year’s App, which has info on all of the scheduled meetings and events can be found by searching for Mensa AG 2016 - it is available both on Android and iPhone.
If you are attending, I hope we had a chance to meet and chat. If you didn't make it to San Diego, check out all the things you missed here: http://ag.us.mensa.org/ and consider attending a future AG. The 2017 AG will be held in Hollywood, Florida.
News from National:
Did you know that American Mensa has a number of committees charged with overseeing programs and developing policy at the national level? No matter what your passion, American Mensa has an outlet for your talents, passion and energy. See the full list here: http://www.us.mensa.org/lead/amc/committees/
Click on the committee name to learn more about its work or to contact the chair to find out how you get can get involved.
As a member of the AMC (American Mensa Committee, its national board of directors), I also participate on several committees: Finance and Audit, Communications, and (Chair) Local Group Logistics. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns about anything relating to American Mensa governance, please feel free to contact me. I am your representative at the national level.
Around the Region:
• Central NY Mensa toured their local library to learn more about all of the available resources, prior to their June Business Meeting. What a great way to get more members involved!
• MoNNY (Mensa of Northeastern NY) hosts a monthly Volunteer Afternoon at their Regional Food Bank. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity to give back to your local community with a friendly group of Mensans.
• Southern CT Mensans gathered for a production of Shakespeare on the Sound presents: Hamlet
