Some Members are experiencing a problem after clicking the "Payment" button — there is simply no response or change in the screen. The only solution at this time is to exit and attempt the renewal in a different browser. We are investigating to determine a complete solution. This does not appear to be isolated to a specific browser; incidents have occurred with all current, common browsers. Success has resulted from simply switching to a different browser, which of course has no identifiable logic. If problems persist, please contact associationmanagement@microscopy.org.
