From our Mensa Philippines President +Art Ilano
* * * Mensa Annual Gathering * * *
Section 4c. ... A member shall have the [duty and responsibility] to attend all business meetings, official activities or functions of the association.
We have just one major official business meeting every year, and that is the Annual Gathering.
This year, our Mensa Annual Gathering shall be held this NOVEMBER 17 at the Bellagio 1, 1st Avenue, Global City, Taguig. This is the large structure behind the Burgos Circle.
Registration starts at 6:30pm, with the proceedings commencing at 7:00pm.
As a Mensa member (or renewing member), you are obligated to be there
because this is the one event where you get to vote on important matters
(if any), meet the general Mensa membership, and get to know what is going on and what the plans are for Mensa next year, so that you can duly participate, contribute, and be a true part of the Mensa experience.
Okay, now that we have appealed to your sense of duty and responsibility, here comes the good news...IT'S GOING TO BE FUN!
The 2012 Annual Gathering shall celebrate:
- 20 years of Mensa Philippines,
- a belated Halloween,
- an advanced Thanksgiving,
- an even more advanced Christmas, AND
- the impending Mayan Calendar Armageddon!
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Mensa Philippines armAGgathering!
We're going to party like it's the end of the world! (With business thrown in for good measure, just in case the world still goes on afterwards.)
Brace yourselves for a night of Mensa-style mingling, dancing, and drinks (for those who aren't minors, of course)!
We have no less than the popular DJ Arra providing us with our dance tracks for the night! Early-comers also get to have their pictures taken with DJ Arra (look her up, people)!
We have food catered courtesy of Paella Express!
Plus free-flowing beer! (Don't worry, Mensans are responsible drinkers.
Most important, you get to meet and mingle with Mensa members past and present... in an environment that will force you to meet and mingle!
Be there. It's for both business and pleasure. And it may be your last! :)
