I have not been able to find any freelancer's association or union to join in the country where I am currently residing in, Indonesia.
This means that I have been freelancing since forever without enjoying the benefit of networking, perks, health and dental insurance coverage, discounts and possible expansion, access to legal advise, as well as freebies and goodies that come with being a member of a freelancer's association.
Throughout my 10+ years freelancing, I have worked with people all over the world, India, the States, Germany, Brazil, China, and many more. They have all found me by word-or-mouth or personal recommendations. Still, I feel like I am missing out a lot without a union or association with other freelancers.
Are there international associations or unions for freelancers that I can join?
