About Us

South Coast Mensa, a dynamic and diverse chapter of American Mensa, Ltd., is dedicated to fostering an environment for individuals who have demonstrated intellectual aptitude by scoring within the top 2% of the population on standardized intelligence assessments. As a part of Region 5, our chapter serves the South Coast area of Alabama, joining forces with Mensa communities throughout the southeast region of the United States.

Our community is a vibrant collective of inquisitive minds, offering a platform to engage with over 150 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and participate in local, national, and international events. Beyond providing intellectually stimulating engagements, we empower our members with opportunities for leadership development, social connection, and community service, fueling personal and collective growth.
