Summer Membership -- $25.
We want you to take advantage of as many OLLI opportunities as possible so be sure to check out our classes, upcoming events and opportunities to volunteer. An OLLI at BCC membership is required to register for Classes and some Special Events, but non-member guests are welcome at many Special Events and Distinguished Speaker lectures, but OLLI members gain admission at reduced prices
If you're certain you'll only be here for the summer, summer membership may be best for you. It is valid only for June 1 through August 31 in the year your payment is received.
Four Ways to Join OLLI at BCC: You may choose to join either by using our new secure and convenient online system, by filling out and mailing in an Application Form, by telephoning or stopping in at our OLLI office at BCC.
1.) Joining online: You can pay with a credit or debit card. Be assured that our online payment system, using PayPal's payment gateway, is very secure. Neither OLLI at BCC, nor our web hosting company (Wild Apricot) ever sees your credit card number.
Please note that our online membership software uses a "one name / one email address" regimen. If you share an email address with another potential OLLI member, only one of you will be able to join online and consequently take advantage of the convenience of online registration and payment. Setting up a separate email account for your spouse or partner, for example with Google's Gmail service, is very easy and it's free.
Select your choice below for either an Annual or Summer Membership. Then click on "Next" and you will be asked to complete a membership profile and make a secure payment.
