    Microsoft® recently announced that the Internet Explorer 11 browser (IE11) will be retiring on June 15, 2022. This means the IE11 browser will no longer be supported and will be replaced by Microsoft Edge. Due to the increasing limitations of IE11, our payment provider is planning to stop supporting access from IE11 on January 1st, 2022.

    If you’re currently using IE11, after January 1st, 2022, plan to start using any of these more modern browsers to register and pay for any of our events: Google Chrome (preferred), Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, or Firefox.

    If for whatever reason, using IE11 is mandated at your organization, you should be able to use Microsoft Edge’s IE compatibility mode as an exact replacement for IE11.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us at if you experience any issues.
