Online Registration Updates - May 30, 2022
We are making a change to our online registration and payment process. As of Monday 5/30, online payment goes away. Going forward you will still register for all activities in My Active Center but you will pay at the BCOA.
When you register in My Active Center, your 'shopping cart' will show you the amount due and the activities for which you have registered. Payment for those activities is due the week you register and is to be made by check, if possible, or by cash for the exact amount due.
Payments should be delivered to the BCOA front desk in a sealed envelope with your name, amount enclosed and the paid activities for which you have registered. The front desk will verify that those details are on the envelope and the payments will then be processed by COA staff.
Additional instructions are below. If you have questions, please call us at 978-671-0916.
Online Registration Through MyActiveCenter
The Billerica COA uses an automated check-in system called MySeniorCenter at our reception desk. The system is designed to help our staff members track participation and volunteer service, and improve the way we report our services to the Town and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. It enables us to quickly and accurately detail the services we are providing which will increase our chances of receiving additional funding in the future. Over 900 senior centers across the U.S. and Canada use MySeniorCenter – so it is a proven tool.
This system is extremely easy to use. All visitors and volunteers receive a small key tag which can attach to your key ring (the card contains no personal information, but it will allow the system to recognize you). Instead of signing in on a sheet of paper, you scan your key tag at the reception desk and use the touchscreen to select the programs you are participating in that day or to indicate the volunteer service you are providing.
Registration for many of our programs, particularly Exercise, Craft programs and Special Events, is done online through myactivecenter which is a service of MySeniorCenter. Payments for programs are made directly to the BCOA. See our Registration Guide for step-by-step instructions on how to create an account and register online for COA programs.
