Interest Group Consultant Simulation
In this activity you will be pretending to be a consultant
for an interest group. You will be charged with helping that interest group
better achieve its goals. Have fun and be creative in this activity!
Your paper should be at least 500 words long.
First, select an interest group from the
following list that you will be consulting for (*you may only complete this
assignment on one the listed interest groups):
Service Employees International Union
National Association of Realtors
US Chamber of Commerce
National Rifle Association
National Education Association
American Federation of State, County, and
National Association of Broadcasters
In the first sentence of your paper please state
very clearly what interest group you have selected.
Next, describe in your own words, what your
selected interest group mission is. Do not copy and paste or quote the
organization’s mission in your paper. Use your own words.
Next, take that mission statement and rewrite it
in a new short one sentence “elevator pitch” that you think would be more
effective. Feel free to get creative.
Look up your selected interest groups website.
What is the web address? What do you like about their website? What do you
think could be improved about their website?
Look up your selected interest group on social
media. What is good about their social media presence? What could be improved
about their social media presence?
Look up your selected interest group on Open Secrets
or the Federal Elections Commission website and discuss your findings. How much
money does your interest group have? What is that money being spent on? In your
opinion, are they using their money effectively? How could they spend their
money to better accomplish their goals?
Come up with at least one completely original
idea that could be used to improve your selected interest groups efforts. Describe
this idea in detail. What specific goal would this idea seek to accomplish?
What types of resources would this idea need? How would this idea improve the
organization’s efforts to achieve its mission?
Finally, be sure to provide a reference list.
Please note: APA formatting and citations rules apply to
