Chairman’s update

By Jenny Gill

Chairman, British Mensa

I trust this message finds you in good spirits as we continue our journey together in our dynamic community. It is with great pleasure that I bring to you some exciting updates and important announcements that I believe will further enrich our Mensa experience.

First and foremost, I am delighted to share with you the resounding success of our new online community, Mensa Community. Since its launch a couple of weeks ago, Mensa Community has exceeded our expectations in terms of engagement and participation. It fills me with immense pride to see both new members and familiar faces actively contributing to discussions, forming connections, and sharing their insights within this dynamic online space. I am also pleased to hear that Cantarus, the developer behind Mensa Community, has hailed its launch as one of their most successful in terms of engagement, a testament to the collaborative efforts of our entire community.

Mensa Community is designed to be a welcoming and inclusive space for all members, providing a space for intellectual exchange, camaraderie, and mutual support. Whether you are a seasoned member or a recent addition to our community, I encourage you to explore the various features and opportunities available within Mensa Community, and to actively participate in shaping its growth and development.

In light of the launch of Mensa Community, it is with mixed emotions that I announce the transition of our closed Facebook groups, including Brightspace, into unofficial groups. While Brightspace and the regional groups have served as valuable forums for discussion and interaction in the past, Mensa Community now represents the future of our online community. I am confident that the vibrant discussions and sense of community that characterised our Facebook groups will thrive within Mensa Community, and I invite all members to join us in this exciting new chapter.

On a more solemn note, it is with deep sadness that I must inform you of the passing of Susan Lambert, a longstanding member who has actively supported Head Office for many years by reviewing prior evidence received as a route to membership. Susan’s contribution has played a vital role in welcoming many of our younger members to Mensa and her dedication and expertise will be greatly missed.

Looking ahead, I am eagerly anticipating this year’s British Mensa Annual Gathering, which will be held in Leeds, not too far from my own home. Hotel bookings are now open, and I am excited to extend a warm invitation to each and every one of you to join us from Thursday 24 to Monday 28 October for what promises to be a memorable and enriching experience. Head Office will soon be seeking volunteers to help shape the programme for this year’s gathering, and I encourage those of you who are interested to lend your expertise to this endeavour.

In closing, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your continued support, engagement, and dedication to the ideals of British Mensa. Together, we will continue to inspire, challenge, and uplift one another as we journey forward into the realms of intellect and discovery.
