Dhruv Kotecha
I have been involved with Live Music Society since my first day at university and I want to be involved as much as possible next year as it will be my last at UCL. Being a First Year Rep allowed me to experience how members of a good committee interact and collaborate in order to make a society work well, as well as contribute a little (despite it being a relatively minor position). As a physics student, I am quite comfortable with numbers and I have had experience handling money while working as a cashier at H&M. The uncertainty due to Covid means that in-person events still aren't guaranteed next year, so my suggestions, if elected, would be to invest in some more recording equipment such as interfaces and software and/or video equipment such as batter quality cameras. This would allow the society to potentially host, and improve the quality of, more "pre-recorded" shows, such as this year's Extravabandza (depending on whether multiple people are allowed in the same room or not). And if this isn't enough I can always give free drinks to anyone who votes for me :)

The Treasurer is a vital role in any society, and with my finance experience, I wish to ensure UCL Live Music Society have its financial affairs in place!

As Finance Director for multiple competitions in secondary school, I believe I would contribute well as Treasurer! I supervised my team in Young Enterprise and oversaw various project aspects, including marketing and finance, becoming a perfect base for leadership qualities. I implemented cash flow models to accurately predict day-to-day cash and budgeting requirements. With so many live gigs and production, UCL Live Music is required to have a good handling of finance is required, and I believe I can achieve that alongside a communicative team! Furthermore, as a musician myself, I handled my EP Launch Party's finances and bargained everything for an affordable price! I have also played at many festivals and communicated with festival managers and sponsors; I could reach out to them for sponsorship towards our Live Gigs!

As Treasurer, I will ensure UCL Live Music Society will function efficiently and help ease the stress behind hosting our events! I aim to share my finance skills and help UCL Live Music Society achieve the best we can!
