IMRF joins Community Consolidated School District 15 in Palatine as the only public-sector entities in Illinois to have received the Gold Award.
"What a tremendous honor for the entire organization, for the IMRF Board of Trustees and the entire staff," retiring Executive Director Louis W. Kosiba said. "It really reflects our hard work and our commitment to achieving our mission, our vision, and our values."
