The hotel will sell out, so please make your reservations accordingly.

 

Spa Discount: The Ritz-Carlton is graciously offering Workshop attendees a 10% discount off spa treatments of 60 minutes or longer, as well as 10% off retail products in the spa boutique.

Financial Hardship Statement

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, ABI may allow the individual to work at the 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. Financial assistance is available for this program; all applications for financial assistance must be submitted by June 12, 2020. For more information or to request an application, please contact the American Bankruptcy Institute at (703) 739-0800 or send an e-mail to adonohue@abiworld.org.

ABI DEFINES A “GUEST” AS 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.

Cancellation Policy

 

All fees will be refunded if written notice of cancellation is received by July 2, 2020. For cancellation requests received between July 2 and July 15, all fees, except a $75 handling fee, will be refunded. Substitutions will be allowed.

 

After July 15, 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.

 

If the Conference is cancelled, attendees can request for all fees (including optional events) to be refunded OR you may apply any funds you have paid to ABI to a future ABI event (within one calendar year).

Anti-Harassment Policy

The American Bankruptcy Institute is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

 

Our anti-harassment policy can be found at: https://www.abi.org/about-us/bylaws-and-policies.
