A new site design is slowly spreading across the pages of this site. Page conversions are still in progress. Please let the Webmaster know with any questions or concerns.

August 7, 2015

A structural rewrite of the site, starting with the Join Mensa and Legal Disclaimers pages, has begun. Other pages will gradually begin to appear slightly differently. An updated appearance with mobile-friendliness and better accessibility is being developed behind-the-scenes. For the technically-inclined, the PHP is now being subsumed by Jekyll, a static site generator that outputs the finished HTML before it is uploaded. This decreases page load times and makes updating the site easier. Please contact the Webmaster with any questions or concerns.

Election petitions for the Board of Directors have been received. None of the positions are contested, which means that there will be no election. I’ve posted the Election Committee’s 2015 report in the Members Only area.

December 12, 2014

Updated the calendar from January through June… except that I haven’t put the [iCal] links there yet (see below). The feedback on this feature has been positive, so I’ll carry it forward, but not tonight. I expect to have that ready by the weekend. Stay tuned.

November 30, 2014

I’ve added a feature to the Members Only calendar. For the time being, it’s only on the December, 2014 calendar page. If I decide that I like it, I’ll keep on doing it in the future, but for now, I’m still evaluating and I would like to ask you to help me evaluate it.

At the end of each event description, there’s a link labeled [iCal] which offers an iCalendar-compatible event description, suitable for loading into any of the usual Internet-enabled calendars—Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, or the calendar on your iPhone or iPad. (For the technically inclined, this Wikipedia article explains all of the gory details about what it is I’m aiming for.)

Because this is brand new, I consider this a work in progress for the moment. I think it’s working pretty well, but of course, every browser and every calendar is different, and so your experience is bound to be somewhat different from mine. I’d like you to try it out and let me know how (or if?) it’s working for you. I also want you to let me know if you have thoughts about how it might be more useful if it were to behave differently than it does.

I can be reached at either [email protected] or [email protected].

Danielle Hanne has resigned from the Board, which means that the position of Board Secretary and one of the Member-at-Large positions are now vacant, and are now listed as such on the Contacts page.

I am assuming until I hear otherwise that this also means that her other positions are vacant too, and so I have removed her name from Membership Outreach and Mensaphone on the Contacts page, and I have removed the Kids SIG and the Gen X SIG altogether from the SIGs page. I have also listed Beverly Swabb as the point of contact for B.I.T.E.

While I’m making changes to the SIGs page, I’ve also removed Beer on a Boat, which is canceled until further notice. If and when that changes, I’ll put it back.
