CRVA: Payments also made in Raleigh, Winston-Salem, Richmond

In a memo emailed today to the mayor and Charlotte City Council members, the CRVA said it was standard operating procedure for the CIAA host city to appoint a local tournament coordinator to manage the week-long event.

The memo also says that previous host cities, including Raleigh, Winston-Salem and Richmond, had specific contractual agreements similar to Charlotte's, where the CIAA paid a bonus for the coordinator's services.

"The amounts paid also were different in each city for the services of the coordinator," the memo says.

Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx this week asked the authority to shed more light on how and why manager Ereka Crawford-Brim received $100,000 in bonus payments earmarked from the CIAA basketball tournament, an arrangement the Observer reported on Sunday.

The CRVA's ethics policy states that employees can't accept cash or gifts from outside the CRVA payroll, but CRVA chief executive Tim Newman told the Observer last week the bonuses were OK because they were "salary" and not gifts.

Isn't there a non-profit board "overseeing" the CRVA? Do they get a free pass on their job to be a watch dog? Why let Vi Lyles step off this board without asking her why she didn't actually "manage" and "oversee" what is happening over there.

are all comments coming from within the organzation? it is clear the ceo and employee have enemies in that company, why? i hope this will not turn into a racial issue, but we are heading down that road...typical Charlotte, give us a Big Empty Convention Center, give us the money to use it, but we don't want those DIRTY people spending money inside...DUM-IES

I agree that the Observer should seek out the CRVA board and ask them why they aren't doing their job. People like industrialist Derick Close, attorney Frank Bryant and bureaucrat Vi Lyles should be interviewed about how they can sit in a dozen meetings and back slap and not ask any questions. If they can't manage it, shame on the city council for appointing their figurehead buddies.
