ABI’s COVID-19 Policy
As the COVID-19 landscape continues to evolve, so too must ABI’s safety policies for in-person events. ABI’s priority for all conferences and events is the safety and welfare of our attendees, partners and team. For the ABI Events, we are no longer requiring that in-person attendees show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than two days (48 hours) prior to arrival. In lieu of testing, attendees can upload their vaccination card to show that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (as defined by the CDC) in order to gain admittance to the program. This decision was made in consultation with ABI leadership and is based on guidance issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities. It is also consistent with the policies of many of our member firms and other associations nationwide.
5 hours of CLE credit are pending in states calculating CLE on a 60-minute hour, and 6 hours of CLE credit are pending in 50-minute-hour states. Credit hours granted are subject to each state’s CLE credit-approval regulations and might not be approved prior to the program. NY MCLE: This transitional and nontransitional program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the CLE Board for a maximum of 6 credit hours, which can be applied toward the professional practice requirement. California MCLE: ABI certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit in the amount of 5 hours. 6 hours of CPE credit are also available.
* ABI offers intermediate-level courses, which assume that attendees will have at least some detailed knowledge of 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 courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website, www.nasbaregistry.org.
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 [email protected].
