AG 2015 in Visp

We cordially invite you to the Annual Gathering (AG) 2015, which will take place in Visp from Friday, September 25 to Sunday, September 27. As usual, the General Assembly (GA) is part of the AG and takes place on Saturday in the Kultur- und Kongresszentrum La Poste from 10:00 to 14:00, with lunch being served around 12:00. After the GA, you can choose between two afternoon events, a guided tour of the Stockalperschloss or Visp's vineyard trail. Saturday will conclude with the traditional gala dinner.

For those who plan to stay the whole weekend, there are two additional events on Friday evening and on Sunday. Please see the program below for details. We kindly ask you to sign up for the events that you want to attend on the website. For members of Mensa Switzerland in good standing: If you sign up until Monday, September 21st, the Saturday afternoon events, the gala dinner, and the visit to Brigerbad on Sunday will be free of charge.

Our hotel recommendation is the Visperhof, Bahnhofstrasse 2, 3930 Visp. If you are looking for a cheaper accomodation, we can recommend Bildungshaus St. Jodern.

Note that Mensa Switzerland was founded in 1965, so this AG will mark our 50th anniversary. We are looking forward to meeting many Mensans from all over the world!

If you are a Mensa member in an other country, you are invited to attend our gathering as a guest. Registration is necessary though, and in order to register, a guest account is required. You may apply for one here.
