CHICAGO (Oct. 8, 2019) – The National Association of Municipal Advisors (NAMA), a professional organization for firms and professionals that specialize in providing advice on bond sales and other financial products used by state and local governments, announced Heidi Amspaugh, a director in Baker Tilly’s Municipal Advisory practice, as its next president. The announcement was made at NAMA’s annual conference, held in Chicago October 2-4.
