Trouble Reading PDFs Online?
The quickest fix may be to use the Google Chrome web browser. This browser has its own internal PDF viewer and does not rely on the Adobe software.
Adobe XI no longer has presets to open web pdf files like the one found here on the IHPA website. There is no problem with the webite or the pdfs, but the Adobe software has changed so you must now tell your browser what program to use when clicking on pdfs. You only have to do this once.
This link will take you to Adobe's help page that describes how to change the settings in the browsers so pdfs will open as expected.

As the saying goes, "...busy as a bee!"
