Why in the world would you want to become an asken?! An asken I know gets phone calls at 3am from parents asking him to get their son out of jail.
Not just once, many times.

On a serious note, if you come with that attitude you'll get nowhere (at best).

These noted askonim only got to where they are because they were interested in helping the greater cause. Contrary to popular belief, it does not begin with respect, wealth or power. In fact, my personal theory is that they only got there because of their involvement in the community, which automatically enhances one's business acumen and management skills, while at the same time imbuing them with a unique passion not to mention the connections they make along the way.

So, you have to start small and do it Lishma.

Joining ou advocacy and going along to their lobbying trips would prob be a good start. The aguda from what it seems is not to hard to volunteer for either and work your way up from there.

The point remains that you need to be genuinely interested in helping the cause, and not just tagging-along with hope that you get dragged up there.

Are you trolling, or are you on the pre diaper stage?
Of course he's trolling.

How to become a noted askin
You either have to have a few million, or have the ability to make everyone think that you do.
Otherwise, no-one is interested in you.

Relax.

There is a big difference between people that just want to be in the pictures with the politicians, and an askin. There are many many people who have been helped by individuals or by large organizations like the Agudah.

Let's not put them in the same basket.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
