OCM Regional Gathering

A Regional Gathering (RG) is a weekend of planned and spontaneous fun attended by Mensans and guests from all over Southern California as well as from throughout the U.S.   Activities range from speakers and workshops to games, trivia, contests, arts and crafts, music, food and drink.

Orange County Mensa’s RG is typically held over Labor Day weekend. (There have been a few years when we haven’t held a gathering.)

We currently don’t have a Regional Gathering planned for 2024. We’re looking for a Chair and a Committee. If and when we solidify our plans, we will announce the details via the usual Mensa channels.


Since 1981, Orange County Mensa has hosted 32 Regional Gatherings (RGs) and 2 Annual Gatherings (AGs). Here is the complete list:
