Accomodations

The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is sold out. A room block at the Mandalay Bay is available for conference attendees.

The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is a sanctuary from the bright lights of the dazzling Las Vegas Strip, all on the 35th to 39th floors of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino tower—ensuring a more intimate atmosphere and attentive personal service. ABI has arranged a special conference rate of $249/night. Reservations must be made directly with the resort by August 8, 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.

Conference Attire

Attire is casual throughout the conference.

Attorney Specialist Certification

The new Bankruptcy Law includes a provision that allows bankruptcy courts to increase professional compensation awards to attorneys who are board certified. Legislators and the courts recognize that the successful operation of the bankruptcy system depends upon the involvement of professionals with special expertise. The American Board of Certification (ABC) will offer its business bankruptcy, consumer bankruptcy and creditors’ rights exams at the Four Seasons from 8:45 to 5:00 p.m. This is one of the last opportunities to take the exam under the current law. Details on the certification process, exam composition and a sample exam can be obtained by visiting the ABC web site or by calling (703) 739-1023. The ABC certification programs are sponsored by the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Commercial Law League of America, and all three programs are accredited by the American Bar Association.

Continuing Education

Approval for approximately 12 hours of CLE credit, including 1.5 hour of ethics, is available. CPE credit is also available; mark the appropriate box on the registration form.

California MCLE

ABI certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit by the State Bar of California in the amount of 12 hours, of which 1.5 hours will apply to legal ethics.

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 jdugas@abiworld.org.

Cancellation Policy

All fees, except a $75 handling fee, will be refunded if written notice of cancellation is received by August 19. No refunds will be honored after August 19, but substitutions will be allowed.
