Arlington, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
American Mensa’s 2012 Annual Gathering is taking place July 4-8 in Reno, Nev. at The Silver Legacy Casino and Hotel. This five-day event happens every year during the Independence Day holiday and is an opportunity for members of the high IQ organization to connect with colleagues and friends. This year’s theme is The End of Time.
“The Mayans actually considered ‘the end of time’ to be a transitional period, foreseeing a new way of thinking and living,” says Ken Wright, Annual Gathering 2012 Chairman. “We hope our members will learn a few interesting things, think a few new thoughts, have fun with friends and family, and enjoy all that Reno-Tahoe has to offer.”
This five-day event will provide an opportunity for members to connect with colleagues and friends. More than 250 lectures with a wide array of speakers and subjects including genetic engineering, fashion, science fiction, brain optimization, podcasting and Civil War-era fiddle music will be offered. In addition, Mensa member and co-star of “The Amazing Spiderman,” Leif Gantvoort, will discuss what it’s like to be part of a storied franchise and share his experience as a writer and actor.
For non-members who would like to participate in the gathering there are two events the public is invited to:
