Annual Gathering Programming

Annual Gathering Programming

Make the AG Your Own

Programming at the Annual Gathering, much like the AG itself, mirrors our members’ diverse interests. If you can imagine a topic, there’s a good chance we’ve held an AG program covering it.

AG Schedule At-a-Glance

What to know before you go: Here’s a high-level look at when registration will be open and some Annual Gathering staples.

The full session schedule will be available mid-June.


Sponsored by the Mensa Foundation, Spark! comprises three days of structured programming for kids ages 4-12, divided into age groups, enabling children to have their own AG experience.

Register for Spark!

(Registration for Spark! must be completed in addition to AG registration.)

Misster Mensa Pageant & Fundraiser

A highlight event at each year's Annual Gathering, the Misster Mensa Pageant is equal parts prowess, parody, and pandering, proceeds from which directly benefit the Mensa Foundation.

Could you be our next Misster Mensa? Contestant applications are open March 1–30.

Mensa Foundation Colloquium

Join us July 5 in Sparks, Nev., for the Mensa Foundation’s 2022 Colloquium, Giftedness Across the Lifespan: A More Complete Picture, where we’ll explore the latest work on giftedness — research and ideas that will expand our understanding of intelligence, high ability, and giftedness across the entire lifespan.
