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 new 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 and payments for fee-based activities are made from there using PayPal. See our Registration Guide for step-by-step instructions on how to create an account and register online for COA programs.
