The Civilization Society lab has three levels of meeting formality:
      Informal Workshops, and
      Formal Workshops and Symposiums.

Attending a lab Social, such as a monthly Climate Club, All Media Club (expanded Bookclub), or Service Club, is a great way to meet The Civilization Society people.

Attending a lab Informal Workshop, such as a Think Tank, Logic Tutorial, or Self-Image Focus, is a more structured way of learning about The Civilization Society, its people, and its programs.

A lab's Weekly Conference includes the Universal Cogency and Self-Image Nurturism Institutes' undergraduate Formal Symposium and Workshops. Visitors and undergraduates may find that attending a Weekly Conference constitutes a real intellectual and emotional challenge. Still, everyone is engouraged to attend, learn, and graduate from both Institutes. Only member-graduates of The Institutes of Universal Cogency and Self-Image Nurturism may attend and participate in a lab's graduate formal workshop. The focus of this workshop is construction of Q.E.D. The "Utopian" Agenda. Following the Weekly Conference undergraduate formal symposium and workshops, visitors are encouraged to join all lab members for the graduate Formal Symposium.

Potluck socials are held following the first Weekly Conference of the month.
