The resort is within an hour’s drive of Providence, R.I., and Hartford and New Haven, Conn., and just over 90 minutes from Boston. New York is little more than two hours away. A special conference rate of $139 single/double has been arranged from May 3-4, 2017. Make your reservations by April 12, 2017, to reserve this special rate. You can make your reservation online at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/newyorkinstitute2017, or by calling (800) 369-9663 and using group code NYIC17. ABI cannot guarantee anyone a room after the April 12 cut-off or after the specially rated ABI block has been filled.

Cancellation Policy

All fees, except a $75 handling fee, will be refunded if written notice of cancellation is received by April 13, 2017. No refunds will be granted after April 13, but substitutions will be allowed. After April 13, upon written request, a coupon for 20% off the registration fee (not including optional events) will be issued, which can be used (by the canceling registrant only) for any ABI educational program up to one year after this conference, or for this same conference next year.

Continuing Education Credit

3.25 hours of general CLE credit are pending in states calculating CLE on a 60-minute hour, and 3.5 hours of general CLE credit are pending in 50-minute-hour states. Credit hours granted are subject to approval from each state. California MCLE: ABI certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit in the amount of 3.25 hours. NY MCLE: This transitional and non-transitional program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the CLE Board for a maximum of 3.5 credit hours, which can be applied toward professional practice. 3.5 hours of CPE and CTP (Certified Turnaround Professional) credit are also available.

 

*ABI offers intermediate-level courses, which assume that attendees have some knowledge in insolvency matters (pursuant to the “Statement on Standards for CPE Programs” established by AICPA and NASBA). ABI is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State Boards of Accountancy have the final authority on the acceptance of individual course for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website, www.nasbaregistry.org. For more information regarding administrative policies such as complaints and refunds, please contact the American Bankruptcy Institute at (703) 739-0800.

 

ABI acknowledges that in some instances there will be persons who need to attend an educational seminar for CLE credit who are not able to pay full registration fees. ABI will handle such instances on a case-by-case basis and will work with the individual on alternative solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration rate, ABI will offer a reduced rate based on what the individual can reasonably afford to cover the cost of meals and materials. For persons unable to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the individual to work at our registration area for a few hours during attendee check-in, or assist in conference set-up. ABI also has reduced rates for government employees, professors, law clerks and students. For information on tuition assistance, send an e-mail to adonohue@abiworld.org.

* A “GUEST” IS A SPOUSE, CHILD OR COMPANION — NOT A PROFESSIONAL COLLEAGUE. A professional colleague is defined as someone who consults with or is employed by an organization whose members are eligible for ABI membership. If a professional colleague is found to be registered as a guest, ABI reserves the right to cancel his or her event registration. Any person not meeting the criteria of “guest” who wishes to participate in any ABI function at the conference is required to register separately at the full conference rate.

** This event requires a minimum number of attendees. If this minimum is not met, the event will not be held, and you will be refunded any fees and notified two weeks prior.

*** Includes registration for the Symposium.
