Bertrand Chaffee Hospital
Kara Kane

Kara Kane is the community relations coordinator for Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and development coordinator for the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation. Kane is a former SGI school board member and moderates an online group for people who “live in, work in or otherwise love the Springville community.” 

Kane appreciates working for a non-profit facility that is also a major employer for the area. “Our connection with the Chamber is helpful in helping to promote the value of our hospital to other members and their employees,” she said. “I respect the ability of the Chamber to bring people together from different industries and fields to come up with creative ideas to address common challenges.”

Village of Springville
Bill Krebs

William Krebs retired from a career as a high school English teacher, and has been honored by the New York State English Council as a Teacher of Excellence. He has 25 years of experience in village government.

Krebs represents the Village of Springville at Chamber meetings. “The Village strives to build a close partnership with the local business community,” he said. “Village representatives must participate in community and business development.” The Village’s $9 million budget includes a general fund, water fund, sewer fund and electric fund, representing an array of essential services for local residents and businesses.

Krebs’s favorite Chamber event is the Oktoberfest. It is traditional for the Mayor to tap the first keg. Krebs enthusiastically participates in this custom in Springville.
