About Intertel

Since its founding in 1966, Intertel has grown to about 1,900 members in over thirty countries (click here to see where they are). Members of the society come from varied cultures and all walks of life; the single attribute they all share is high intellectual ability.

The society has three purposes:

  • to encourage meaningful intellectual fellowship
  • to foster an exchange of ideas on any and all subjects
  • to assist in research relating to high intelligence

The society selects officers and regional directors who function as the Executive Board, the governing body of Intertel. Many local groups meet regularly.

Because members of Intertel are so geographically widespread, communication is very important. All members are encouraged to contribute to Integra, the Journal of Intertel, published ten times a year. In addition, regional newsletters are published periodically, and many members correspond via e-mail or a growing variety of online forums. There is an annual gathering (this year in Denver), and the various regions schedule social activities.

Web presences

PLEASE NOTE: The Region 7 groups are by-invitation-only. Please contact James Stiles if you would like to join.

It should be borne in mind these web presences, while associated with Intertel members, are not controlled or monitored by Intertel. They are operated under the rules of the parent site by their owners.

Intertel has been asked by the owners of Intertel-related Facebook accounts to note that these groups, by majority request of members, require a minimum age of 18, even though Facebook has a minimum age of 13 and Intertel has no age restrictions.
