A Message from the Chair of Finance

Hello, everyone! This is Chair of Finance! This year is going to be one of the most productive ever! We have new projects lined up, and we plan on working with each and every one of our fellow students (that means you) in accomplishing our goals! Increasing our revenue to fund the programs that De Anza students love, is our primary motivation for the coming plans this year.

If you have any ideas to help our school, come over to the meetings and tell us!

What does the Finance Committee do?

The goal of the Finance Committee is to establish policies and procedures for budget development, budget approval and expending of all money under the control of the DASB. Instead of getting too technical, the following are the main duties of this committee:

  • To process all the Budget Requests that come throughout the year from programs that DASB funds, and make appropriate suggestions to the Senate.
  • To make sure that the program the DASB funds, follows the Stipulations (Rules and Regulations) set by the Budget and Finance committee
  • To keep track of all DASB funds and accounts, and act in accordance with the Budget and Finance Codes
  • Budget Deliberation: Allocate funds for the programs for the coming year. This is a two-day process, in which the Budget and Finance committee will be deciding how much of the budget to allocate to each program
What is the purpose of the ‘PROJECTS’ within Finance?

The DASB collects a million dollar revenue per year. This revenue comes predominantly through the flea market, and the DASB Cards, to name a few. So the Finance committee aim to propose projects that can increase our million dollar budget further. With all that said, these are a few of the proposed projects for this year! 

Proposed Projects for 2011-2012
  • Increasing DASB Revenue

Thank you so much for your interest in the Finance Committee, and if you have ANY questions or concerns, please do contact us. We would LOVE to hear from you!
