February 15: Eugene-Springfield Fire

A decade ago, the Eugene and Springfield Fire Departments entered into a functional merger. While each City continues to budget and set policy for fire services, the department functions as a single unit.

Now the cities and the Department are considering what the future nature of the relationship will be. Chief Michael Caven will discuss the prospects.

March 7: Tribal One

Tribal One was incorporated in 2011 as the Mith-ih-Kwuh Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) under Section 17 of the Indian Reorganization Act. This federally-chartered corporation and its subsidiaries are 100% owned by the Coquille Indian Tribe of Southwestern Oregon.

While our values and approach to service are deeply tied to our Tribal roots, our impact can be found in a wide range of commercial architectural, engineering, and construction projects and professional services across the United States.

The organization is committed to creating a positive, lasting impact upon the communities in which we operate. To this end, the family of companies provides a comprehensive range of services dedicated to supporting client success.

Judy Farm, Chief Executive Officer, and David Hill, Director of Economic Development for Tribal One’s Lane County Operations will provide an overview of Tribal One’s business portfolio (including Construction, Economic Development, Communications Technology, and Professional Services), and how the work they do translates into benefits for both the Coquille Indian Tribe and the communities in which we do business.

Since 2014, Judy Farm has served as Tribal One CEO, directing the work of the company’s businesses and economic development team for the Coquille Indian Tribe. From 2014-2019, Judy also served as CEO of the Coquille Economic Development Corporation where she presided over the Tribe’s core gaming and hospitality business. Judy also served as a project manager and executive director of special projects for CEDCO and has held positions with Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield and Nike, Inc. She serves as a member of Board of Directors for the Nasomah Health Group, Colville Tribal Federation Corporation, Kids Unlimited Academy and Southern Oregon Regional Economic Development, Inc., and is a member of the Bay Area Hospital Community Foundation Committee.

David Hill is a native Oregonian and an enrolled member of the Coquille Indian Tribe. David graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s degree in Family & Human Services and is an active volunteer serving on the Steering Committee for Leadership Eugene/Springfield, as well as Board of Directors for Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce and Community Lending Works in Springfield, OR. David serves as Director of Economic Development for Tribal One’s Lane County Operations, and is passionate about community engagement as a catalyst for economic development and growth. This passion comes from years of involvement in the hospitality and service industry, as well as his experience in working with vulnerable populations. David spent several years in the Portland Metro area working as a Field Sales Executive for FedEx Services, and in 2021, returned to the Willamette Valley working as Senior Sales Manager for Mereté Hotel Management, an award-winning hotel management company based in Springfield, OR. David lives with his husband Joe and their two bulldogs – Reggie and Brittany. They enjoy road trips, spending time with friends and family, and adventuring outdoors to explore Oregon’s abundance of forests, lakes, and rivers.
