Having just undergone a $14 million renovation, 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, shopping, fishing
and winery tours. 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,
2006. Reservations may be made only once you have registered with ABI.
Upon payment of the conference registration fees, you will receive a
hotel reservation card with your conference information. Rooms
are held on a first-come, first-served basis. ABI cannot
guarantee any rooms after the specially rated ABI block is filled.
Approval for approximately 8 hours of CLE credit, including
2.5 hours of ethics, is available. CPE credit is also

approved for MCLE credit by the State Bar of California in the amount

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 of 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 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All fees, except a $75 handling fee, will be refunded if
