Links For Members

Local C/BR Information

Charlotte/Blue Ridge Mensa Member Directory!

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.

Members Handbook – 2012

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.

Email Event Reminders

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 publicity@cbrmensa.org and we’ll get you on the list!!

Facebook

Our group is moderated, requests need to be approved.

Another place to get event reminders. If you’re a local member on Twitter and we aren’t already following you, let us know!

    How does one get a login? If it came as part of the onboarding/renewal info, I missed it.

      Michael:

      It wouldn’t have been in your packet from national. In your case, having this comment approved should allow you to post additional comments, using the same name and email you used for this one.

      All others, you can contact webmaster@cbrmensa.org to arrange a login, or just post a comment as Michael has done. Approval may be limited to current or former members, policy is still being developed.

      John Barnes, Webmaster
