I hate to complain about a worthy organization however, I've earned the right to question why, after 15 months, I don't even get a e-mail back about my status as a wanna-be member.
After completing two SS1000's... one BB1500... one 2000 miles in 24hrs....one Mexico to Canada in 36hrs... I have no proof from IBA. The IBA has computer gas receipts, maps, pictures, witness forms and money! My witnesses are now stale and unreliable.
I only want what was earned according to IBA's own guidelines. I am proud of the accomplishments,
but embarrassed in my local biker crowd when I'm asked for proof of IBA membership #.
Following the IBA website we see this ongoing delay in certification isn't new, but doesn't seem important enough to be a priority.
Let me say again, I don't like to complain about a volunteer organization, but our application fees should alleviate any labor shortages so our applications can be processed. I would think the dollars sent with our applications for membership could go to hire IBA support staff.
I would like to hear from IBA, and from others who may experience the same delays.
