Courses, Membership, Programs & Travel

BILL offers three different types of educational programming: regular courses, special presentations, and travel programs. To enroll in a regular course you must first become a member of BILL and also pay a tuition fee for the course. Special presentations are one-time events that are free and open to the public, no membership required. BILL trips are group tours offered at special rates; membership is not required to join a BILL trip.

Membership and Course Registration

BILL membership is required to join regular BILL courses. You can join BILL, renew your membership and register for classes with our secure online registration system. New users will need to create a new account, purchase a membership and then register for courses. A major credit card is required to pay for your membership and/or tuition online, or you may send payment by check to the office after completing the online purchase and/or registration.

Online registration for membership and course offerings

You may also register using the paper Membership and Registration Form in the current print catalog. Mail registrations will not be processed until the day after online registration has opened for the course. Class space is limited, so the online registration system offers your best chance of securing a seat in your first choice class. If your first choice class is full, we encourage you to consider an alternate. Many wonderful classes are offered — try something new!
