The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is the highest rated full-service
resort facility in Northern Michigan. On the shores of Lake Michigan,

Club welcomes all to simply soak up the sun, set sail on a catamaran,
windsurf or charter a sailing vessel. Wave runners, pedal boats and
parasailing provide plenty of excitement the whole family will enjoy.
Away from the beach, attendees can take advantage of golf, tennis,
weightlifting, volleyball, aerobics and racquetball. ABI has arranged

*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 attorney on alternative
solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration rate, ABI
will offer a reduced rate based on what the attorney can reasonably
afford to cover of the cost of meals and materials. For persons unable
to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the attorney 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
