About Internet Explorer

Some Internet Explorer users will experience technical issues when viewing the website.  This is due to a compatibility setting on the browser that must be changed at the user level. In Internet Explorer, make sure you have "Compatibility View" turned off. In Internet Explorer, under "Tools," uncheck "Compatibility View" (see image below).

In IE, under tools, turn off "Compatibility View"
