It is our great pleasure to invite you to join the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) for our first-ever MidYear Meeting, March 16-21, in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica! We will meet at the fabulous Hyatt Ziva/Zilara Rose Hall resort (Ziva is family centered and Zilara is adults only). You will enjoy white sands, the Blue Mountains on the horizon, and a dedicated staff that greets and serves you “from the heart” with the warm Jamaican gesture of hand on heart.

Of course, the centerpiece of the meeting will be superb CLE, networking and friendship and networking opportunities. Early bird registration price of $599 is available through August 2019. Our opening reception and closing event are included in your registration.

To fully register you must also register for your hotel stay. Your hotel registration provides you with many benefits including a choice of seven restaurants plus room service, six bars, oceanside fire pits, two coffee bars, a sweet shop with ice cream, two magnificent pools in addition to the famous white beaches, water sports, two state-of-the-art workout facilities, childcare from 9 to 5 and 6 to 9 and much more. The hotel registration even covers your tax and tips and transportation to and from the airport.

We have also arranged with the Amstar Company to offer exceptional opportunities for offsite excursions to see Jamaica’s world-famous waterfalls, jungles and mountains, or to enjoy reggae music. The Annual Academy Golf Tournament will be held just ten minutes from the resort at the championship White Witch Golf Course, carved from the lush rolling countryside of Jamaica’s historic Rose Hall Plantation. Register for the tournament on the AmStar link. If you think you can’t plan that far in advance, we have cancellation insurance available for purchase. So join us in Jamaica, mon! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you won’t want to miss.
