About Us

History

Malaysian Mensa was founded on 22 May 1984 when Tan Sri Dato' Yong Poh Kon registered the Malaysian Mensa Society and became Malaysian Mensa's Founding Chairman. Members prior to that were only direct members of Mensa International. The establishment of a national Mensa allowed for greater flexibility when organising activities and events and also allowed for a larger portion of funds to be channelled locally.

 


 

Purpose
