After paying the membership amount, after waiting for more than the required time for some action to confirm the membership, after requesting, reminding and even begging, and ending up with still no response-not even for courtesy's sake, finally International Federation of Social Workers responds and gives the membership. (After making me use the only language the world seem to understand these days... 'legal action').
Extremely glad that I was able to get an insight into the functioning of the lousiest, clumsiest and most disorganized organization I have ever seen. So now, I am officially a member of an organization that I don't personally care a damn about. Word of advice to my fellow Social Workers: 'Don't make the mistake I did. Stay out of this organization and save some money.'
