Special Speaker for May 10th Meeting

We’re having a very special speaker at our monthly meeting this Friday, NY Times bestselling author and popular speaker, Kelsey Timmerman. His books, which include “Where Am I Wearing?”, “Where Am I Eating?”, and, most recently, “Where am I Giving?”, seek to take some of our everyday acts and connect them to the people behind them or the people who are impacted by them. Bring a non-CIM friend and you’ll both get in for the special price of $10. (It would normally be $7 for a CIM member plus $10 for their guest.) Bring two non-CIM friends and the three of you will get in for $15. Find out more about Timmerman at www.kelseytimmerman.com. Hope to see you Friday, May 10, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Indianapolis. Doors open at 7; the speaker is at 8. More details in the May MIND.

Candidates between 14-17 years old are required to have one of their parents also sign the registration form in my presence at the testing site. We are not permitted to test candidates under 14 years old. Candidates under 14 will need to apply to the American Mensa, Ltd. national office in Arlington, Texas using approved prior testing evidence. A partial list of accepted tests and scores is available at: www.us.mensa.org/join/testscores/qualifyingscores/. Further questions about prior evidence admission to Mensa may be answered by calling Mensa’s national office at 817-607-0060.

No smoking, calculators, or scratch paper are allowed. Candidates are permitted to take each of the two tests comprising the Mensa Admissions Test battery only once in their lives. Candidates who qualify on either test will be invited to become a member. Please bring a photo ID and one or two #2 pencils. I also have plenty of extras.
