2013 Mensa Membership card

Pull the Mensa Card!

People may hear reports that high profile people such as Sharon Stone, Geena Davis or Bill Clinton are members.

From famous actors and newsmakers to friends and family, there are often claims, assumptions or just curiosity about whether someone is an actual member of Mensa, the high IQ organization. So how does one really know if that claim on a resume is real? Have them pull the Mensa card.

Although Mensa receives numerous inquiries from media and human resource departments to confirm membership, the fastest and most direct way to confirm membership is for a member to produce his or her membership card. Mensa recently distributed new cards to its entire membership base and each year, current members will receive a new card.

“There is often supposition about whether someone is actually a member of Mensa,” says Pam Donahoo, Executive Director of American Mensa. “People may hear reports that high profile people such as Sharon Stone, Geena Davis or Bill Clinton are members. Although they all may qualify, only Geena Davis currently carries our card.”

American Mensa is an organization open to anyone who scores in the top two percent on an accepted, standardized intelligence test. Mensa has more than 57,000 members in the United States and more than 110,000 members around the world. High profile members include Nolan Gould of ABC’s “Modern Family, actor Leif Gantvoort, and Ashley Rickard of MTV’s “Awkward”.
