Northwest Municipal Conference taps Serafin again

On Aug. 25, Serafin & Associates’ Kelly King, Angela Heuer and Scott Burnham were dispatched to Highland Park to administer the highly competitive putting contest at The Northwest Municipal Conference (NWMC) Annual Golf Outing.

In May, Serafin & Associates helped the NWMC and a broad coalition of municipal groups from across the state stop efforts to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars from local communities to help pay down the state’s budget deficit. NWMC represents over 1.3 million citizens residing in 41 municipalities throughout Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties.
