Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for membership being a high IQ. The original aims were, as they are today, to create a society that is non-political and free from all racial or religious distinctions.
The society's official objectives are:
The society welcomes people from every walk of life whose IQ is in the top two per cent of the population, with the objective of enjoying each other's company and participating in a wide range of social and cultural activities.
British Mensa seek a talented and ambitious individual to lead the organisation through a period of change, modernisation and growth.
