Dayton Area Mensa, the local chapter of the international high IQ society, will hold admission testing sessions on Monday evenings, August 12, August 26, 2019, 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the Kettering-Moraine Branch Library at 3496 Far Hills Ave., Kettering. Test takers should arrive about 15-20 minutes prior to testing to complete registration. Late arrivals cannot be accommodated once testing has started.

During August 2019 Mensa offers applicants to pre-purchase a testing voucher for $39.99, a 33% savings instead of the normal $60 test evaluation fee charged by the national Mensa office. To purchase a voucher, go to https://www.us.mensa.org/join/testing/ and click on pre-purchase testing.  Vouchers are valid for two years from issue date at any testing session of American Mensa.

The test is open to anyone age 14 and older, but parental permission to take the test is required for those ages 14-17.  Applicants of any age can also use prior evidence from a wide variety of other standardized IQ tests to qualify.  Dayton Area Mensa has members from elementary school age through early nineties. Mensa members come from many walks of life, races, faiths, ethnic backgrounds and income levels. They include engineers, homemakers, teachers, military personnel, actors, athletes, mechanics, students, and CEOs, and they all share one common trait — high intelligence. The Dayton chapter has over 200 members in the greater Dayton-Springfield-Middletown area and regularly organizes lunch and dinner groups, games nights, pub crawls, movie nights, gifted youth activities, picnics and visits to various educational, cultural, and just plain fun events around the area.

For additional information or to pre-register for the test, please contact testing@dayton.us.mensa.org or call 937-546-7885. Preregistration is encouraged. Walk-ins will be accepted until testing supplies run out. Also see Dayton Area Mensa’s web site at www.dayton.us.mensa.org, the U.
