The Hall of Fame recognizes those members who have performed outstanding and sustained service for years while members of GLAAM. The threshold for induction into the Hall of Fame will have required the equivalent service of more than seven years serving as a LocSec, RG Chair, or Editor of the newsletter. Beyond the Bronze level of the Hall of Fame, we also recognize service at the Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels noting the additional contributions of those individuals who continued to serve Mensa in a variety of ways. Many of these honorees are still contributing members of the GLAAM chapter and we honor their continued work.
