HalloweeM is Coming This Fall! Save the Dates!!

Come to WeeM to have fun with over 500 fellow Mensans and their guests. Play games, attend seminars, dance, talk, eat, drink, volunteer and laugh. Check out the photos to see what happened in past years. Once you come to WeeM, you'll be under its magical spell, returning every year.

The links at the left will take you to general information about HalloweeM and specific information (as it becomes available) about this year's gathering – WeeM registration, hotel reservations, programs, and much more. Return often to see what's brewing in our great caldron or join our WeeM-Notify e‑mail list to get e‑mail updates (no more than one a month, except in October).


We're excited about the venue. The Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel in Wheeling has a lot to offer. It hosts other events we know of with comparable size and similar people, and we have worked with some of their senior staff for several years now.

Won't someone think of the children?

Bring the kids! Chicago has been working with several dedicated volunteers to create a kids' track at our functions. Over the years, we've ironed out the details during our Monthly Gatherings and are pleased to offer you and your kids a wide variety of activities throughout the WeeM weekend. Babysitting will be offered during certain events, and WeeM speakers will deliver programs tailored for the kids.

Entertaining and Educational

A plethora of programs was offered in years past. You can expect to see some repeats of popular programs and many new ones as well. As usual, you will not be disappointed, other than trying to decide which program you'd prefer to see and which ones you'll have to miss because there are too many great ones going on at the same time. And as always, we will offer many tournaments and round the clock game playing.

Ask not what WeeM can do for you, but what you can do for WeeM!

You may not see them, but you see what they do. Volunteers are the caretakers of our haunting! They earn collectible WeeM pins and entries into the Volunteers' Raffle. They are adored by WeeM ghosts and goblins, and are protected from evil spells. If you're interested in helping to plan this awesome event, please contact our Chair in the spring.
