Annual Gathering logo


San Diego | June 29 - July 3

What's an AG?

Tradition since 1963, the Annual Gathering has grown from a two-day meet-and-greet at the New York Belmont to a sprawling and diverse collection of programs, talks, games and entertainment typically spanning the July 4th weekend.

This year, we're headed west to the Golden Coast of California. We've set up a couple of great tours during the stay, scheduled numerous programs and some special events and dinners. And no AG would be complete without a bustling Hospitality room — a 24-hour public space with food, drinks and friends.

Colloquium 2016
The Nature of Genetics: Flora, Fauna and the Future

Joining with the famed San Diego Zoo, the Mensa Foundation presents a program exploring the current and future state of genetics, including research and rescue on the Northern White Rhino, plus discussions on behavioral biology and conservation.

Colloquium annually provides Mensans and the public alike with the opportunity to gather with industry experts, noted authors and scientists to take an intense look at socially relevant topics. Past colloquia have examined the arts, gifted children, biosafety, humor, video gaming, and forensics.
