HOW TO GAIN POLITICAL INFLUENCE
Achieving political influence is a difficult but not impossible task. It can be achieved through
many different methods that include leading a large organization, volunteering, or
fundraising. In this post we will take a look at each one of these methods and the benefits of
gaining political influence.
The key to political influence is holding a position within a large organization that is
influential and powerful. This can be achieved by holding the position of president, vice
president, or secretary in your local club, or being a student body officer at a college. The
advantage of being in this position is the power it provides you with over people and events
on campus. Having your name on the board, and next to your peers on things such as
posters increases visibility. Leadership roles also give you opportunities to network with
other influential people and learn from them.
Another route to political influence is by volunteering. Volunteering is an excellent way to
put your name out there and establish yourself as someone who cares about others.
Whether it’s helping out with a local fundraiser or participating in a charity event,
volunteering will increase your visibility. Voluntary work will also help you build up contacts
to be used in the future when you seek political office or try to gain political influence
A third way is through fundraising for things such as clubs and charity events. Events such as
school dances are an excellent opportunity for people who are willing to put in the effort.
The more people that attend the event and donate to charities, the higher the likelihood of
getting political influence.
Finally, political influence can be gained by being involved with a large organization. These
organizations often have government or student branch offices that provide an opportunity
to meet and get to know influential representatives. The University Republicans are a very
large organization with an office on nearly every campus in America. This provides an
opportunity for students who want political influence to meet these important people and
learn how they became so influential.
Being involved within an organization or group that is influential and powerful will increase
your visibility and provide you with opportunities for political influence.
