Region Profile

Region 6 - Southwest Region

Region 6 is the Southwest Region of American Mensa. It is made up of 15 local groups spread throughout Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas. The chapters of Region 6 vary wildly in size, as it simultaneously is home to two of the 10 largest and two of the 10 smallest chapters. Region 6 was the birthplace of one of American Mensa’s best known features, CultureQuest. CultureQuest began as a competition between two local groups in Region 6 in 1990. In 1991, almost all Region 6 groups participated, and CultureQuest expanded to a national competition in 1992. Region 6 hosts three Regional Gatherings annually, with additional RGs sporadically held every few years. The region has also hosted 7 Annual Gatherings, 3 Colloquiums, and 2 Mind Games. In 2021, both the Annual Gathering and Colloquium will return to Region 6 when the events are held in Houston, TX
