Local C/BR Information
This directory is on a secure web page, available only to current members of American Mensa. You will be required to log in. Links there will provide access to lists organized by last name, interests, and Zip codes. (If you want to be included, see “Update Your PDQ” below.) This same secure page is also used for occasional event directions, when the event is held in a private home and the host prefers not to have directions posted on a public website.
This is Version 2, and will be continue to be revised as needed. Send any comments, complaints, or suggestions to Webmaster@cbrmensa.org. Changes in this version: new bylaws, updated summary of Officer selection, updated information on IdioM delivery.
Reminders are now provided through Constant Contact, an email distribution service. If you have provided (and released!) your email in your national profile, you should already be getting the weekly event announcements. The link will take you to a signup page, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you on the list!!
Our group is moderated, requests need to be approved.
The channel was started by our Local Group Historian, Joe Barrett. He started us off with some videos from previous holday parties – thanks, Joe!
Another place to get event reminders. If you’re a local member on Twitter and we aren’t already following you, let us know!
Browse old issues of the IdioM, going back to 2008. The same page will allow you to search for newsletters from other chapters, just change the selection in the “Filter by” dropdown boxes.
