The director of the Dayton (Ohio) Convention Center resigned last week after the city conducted an audit to investigate allegations of misuse of property and funds at the convention center. Charles Kemp, who had been the center's director since May 2001, left "to concentrate on personal issues and pursue other career opportunities," according to a city press release. Lois Greene has been named interim director. Dayton city manager Jim Dinneen, who placed Kemp on paid administrative leave two weeks ago and who announced Kemp's resignation, did not return calls seeking comment.
