How to become a member

To become a member of FICSA, a staff association or union is invited to send a letter to the FICSA Secretariat (ficsa(at)un.org), explaining the reasons it desires to become a member. A copy of the statutes of the staff association or union should accompany the application letter as well as information about how many staff it represents and its dues structure.

Dues are calculated based on the number of staff of the organization, the category of membership and the total budget approved by Council. The FICSA secretariat will calculate the dues upon request.
