Online registration through MyActiveCenter will be available for programs featured in the October 2017 Wellesley COA newsletter. Read below for additional information:
At the Tolles Parsons Center (TPC), a new, automated check-in system called MySeniorCenter will be available at the 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. The system will enable 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 center 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 will receive a small key tag which can attach to your keyring (the card contains no personal information, but it will allow the new system to recognize you). Instead of signing in on a sheet of paper, you’ll scan your key tag at the reception desk and use the touchscreen to select the programs you’ll be participating in that day or to indicate the volunteer service you are providing. The system also offers people the opportunity to register for programs online through the MyActiveCenter website and allows credit card payment for fee-based programs.
MySeniorCenter Informational Session & Key tag distribution
Friday, September 22, 1:30 – 3:30 p.m., Location: TBD
Over the summer, more than 200 people attended our informational sessions and received their key tags. If you did not attend, please come to the next session on Friday, September 22 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Pre-registration is not required. Every person visiting the Tolles Parsons Center should have a key tag and sign-in using the touch screen. We expect the online registration to begin with October programs. You must set up your account with MyActiveCenter, which requires your key tag number. Even though MySeniorCenter is designed to be user-friendly, Wellesley COA staff members and volunteers will be available for the first few months to help. We want to make the transition as seamless as possible for everyone. Pre-registration is not required. The location is TBD. Please call 781-235-0809 after September 18, 2017.
