About the Area

Known as the “Cherry Capital of the World,” Traverse City offers plenty to those who want to explore the area. Nearby Amon Orchard features a guided tour of the fruit-growing operation, and wineries and vineyards are within easy driving distance. The Traverse City area offers a variety of options to suit every visitor, including shopping, hiking, biking, canoeing and fishing for outdoor enthusiasts.


The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is the highest rated full-service resort facility in Northern Michigan. On the shores of Lake Michigan, the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa invites attendees to bring along the family to enjoy this beautiful area. The warm sand at the Shores Beach 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 for special rates of $155 for hotel accommodations, $185 for Tower reservations and $175 for one-bedroom condos. Reservations must be made directly with the resort by May 15, 2005.

Reservations may be made only after you have registered with ABI. Upon payment of the conference registration fees, you will receive a hotel reservation form with your conference confirmation. Rooms are held on a first-come, first-served basis. ABI cannot guarantee anyone a room after the special-rated ABI block is filled.

Continuing Education

Approval for approximately 8.5–10.2 hours of CLE credit is available. CPE credit is also available; mark the appropriate box on the registration form.

ABI offers intermediate–advanced level courses, which have no prerequisites for attendance. 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 addressed to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, 150 Fourth Ave. North, Suite 700, Nashville, TN, 37219-2417. For more information regarding administrative policies such as complaint and refund, 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 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
