PROCTORS!

Dear Fellow TMs,

Ever think of being a Mensa test proctor? I have, and I hope you have, too.

The health of any organization is strongly influenced by its "income" and "outgo." I'm not talking just money here, but also people. A significant portion of our people "income" is from interested prospects taking the Mensa IQ test. And the test can't be given without volunteer proctors.

What are the requirements to become a proctor? It starts with a four-year college degree (regardless of major). Beyond that, the details become more numerous. I'd be glad to fill you in.

I think that now is a terrific time to expand our pool of proctors, so if you've ever thought about becoming a proctor, please let me know: locsec@tidewater.us.mensa.org.

Gifted Children  Children can become members of Mensa. The regular admissions test is available to prospective members who are at least 14. Prior evidence can be submitted for any prospective member and is the only way for those under 14 to become members. There are tests commonly given by school systems that qualify as evidence. Scores must be at or above the 98th percentile. On some tests that means an IQ of 130 and on others 132 (it has to do with how the tests are constructed and scaled). For more information click here.

Don Gregory (your friendly Webmaster) is the current "moderator"—but the only "moderating" I intend to do is to admit members and handle any problems that arise. Please stop by and join the group!
