The executive department is tasked with the day-to-day operations of the LVCVA and includes all executive officers. Executive management meets daily with employees and stakeholders in the convention and tourism communities.
The executive department includes the offices of the president, senior vice presidents, vice presidents and board of directors, as well as internal audit, finance, legal counsel, human resources and public affairs. These officers interact with employees, hotel CEOs, community leaders and convention association presidents to discuss any potential problems and proactively identify changing trends in the travel and convention industries.
Internal audit is responsible for determining whether organizational units are performing their planning, accounting, custodial or control activities in compliance with management instructions, applicable policies and procedures, and in a manner consistent with both LVCVA objectives and high standards of administrative practice.
Finance and Purchasing is responsible for supporting the LVCVA's best interests by providing professional financial services with consistency, quality and integrity. These services rely on systems for financial reporting and analysis, accounts payable, accounting, payroll, asset management, cash management, investments, purchasing, contracts and central warehouse.
Legal counsel meets with other divisions to ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws. Additional responsibilities include assisting in the preparation of proposed legislation, conducting lobbying activities, acting as general counsel to the LVCVA board of directors, and drafting and approving legal documents (e.g., contracts, bids and proposals).
Human resources is responsible for policies, procedures, program development and implementation of the full spectrum of the LVCVA's human resources functions and programs. This department develops, promotes and implements improved principles, standards, policies, procedures, services and systems governing the overall organization and workforce of the Authority, as well as managing its system for establishing internal agency wide policies and procedures. Human resources provides advice, guidance and support to Authority-wide initiatives, issues, priorities and goals, including but not limited to employee services, cultural diversity and health and wellness.
Public affairs is responsible for a broad spectrum of media relations and communications activities, all focused on one principal goal: to generate positive news media coverage of the Las Vegas destination on a domestic and worldwide basis. Secondary and tertiary activities are geared toward creating community awareness of the LVCVA's function and mission, along with internal communications programs conducted to disseminate knowledge of the LVCVA's activities among employees. Public affairs implements ongoing proactive media outreach programs designed to extend Las Vegas' leisure and business brands around the globe.
