My name is Kevin Rotenkolber and I am a second year Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning major at UC Davis. Prior to joining DCD, I had little political experience, but I spent the better part of my senior year getting everyone on campus talking about politics, every class became a debate on the ethicacy, practicality, and philosophical merits of every policy topic we could collectively think of. When I first joined DCD, the club was in the middle of slowly bouncing back from the most dramatic decline in membership in its history. However, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the club and at the end of the quarter I found myself filling, what seemed to be, the most undesirable seat on the executive board: Director of Finance. It hasn’t always been easy but I had served in similar capacities in an independent filmmaking group and in student government in high school. While neither matches up to the scope or difficulty of being DCD’s Director of Finance, they gave me the foundation on which to help build DCD and its fundraising committee into what it is today; and of that I couldn’t be prouder.
The Director of Finance shall:
Direct all fundraising activities and review all fiscal decisions;
Pursue an active role in fundraising for the club and making contracts with outside funding sources;
Maintain complete records of all expenditures and receipts;
Coordinate Club reimbursement procedure;
Act as DCD official liaison to the Federal Elections Commission, the California Fair Political Practices Commission, the Davis City Clerk (concerning campaign finance laws), and with all financial institutions that we maintain funds with. Especially important to this duty is the filing of Form 460 and 410 with the California Fair Political Practices Commission twice a year on January 15th and July 31st;
Meet with the Executive Board prior to every quarter to plan and review the financial status of the forthcoming quarter’s activities;
Discuss the current financial status at each Executive Board meeting;
Perform such duties as the Executive Board or President may assign or are customarily performed by a Treasurer.
