Mensa, the high IQ society, is a forum that allows for intellectual exchange among its members. There are members in more than 100 countries around the world. Activities include the exchange of ideas through lectures, discussions, journals, special-interest groups, and local, regional, national and international gatherings; the investigations of members' opinions and attitudes; and assistance to researchers, inside and outside Mensa, in projects dealing with intelligence or Mensa. Mensa has many events for members, from the local to the international level. Several countries hold a large event called the Annual Gathering (AG). It is held in a different city every year, with speakers, dances, leadership workshops, children's events, games, and other activities. As a Mensa member, you are entitled to attend Mensa meetings anywhere in the world. Large national and regional gatherings are held frequently in Europe and in the USA. All national Mensa organisations throughout the world have an agreement to accept the transfer of membership with no additional subscription fee for that financial year. Mensa's constitution lists three purposes: "to identify and to foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity; to encourage research into the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence; and to provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members". To these ends, the organisation is involved with programs for gifted children, literacy, and scholarships, and it holds numerous gatherings including an annual summit. Discovering that you have a high IQ can have a wealth of positive effects on a person. Not only does a high IQ look good on CVs and college applications, it can provide a significant confidence boost.
