Jaime Maussan is a well known journalist who has made a career out of following and reporting on the UFO subject for the past 40 years including owning his own television show in Mexico that reports on this important subject. Based on his worldwide recognition he has been able to amass ten's of thousands of UFO videos from the public and has culled these down to an hour long presentation of some of the best UFO footage on the planet. "The number one question I get asked when I speak in public is... 'If what you say is true then why don't we see more photographs and videos of these objects from witnesses with today's cell phone technology?'" said MUFON Executive Director Jan Harzan. "Jaime was invited six months ago to speak at the 2015 MUFON Symposium to answer this question for the unbelieving public and UFO investigators alike. I encourage you to come to the 2015 MUFON Symposium and view this incredible UFO footage for yourself."
"The thesis behind my project was that the belief in UFOs is similar to religious belief and therefore deserves a similar level of respect. " - Kevin Windt, student

Filmmaker Jennifer W. Stein and co-producer Bob Terrio won two EBE awards at the Open Minds film festival in Scottsdale, AZ, February 28, 2015, for the film – “Travis.” This is Jennifer’s fourth EBE award.
“Travis ,” the true story of Travis Walton was three years in the making. All of the living members of the original logging crew are featured in the film in both current and archived interviews, as well as interviews with Stanton Friedman, Kathleen Marden, Ben Hansen, James Fox, Lee Spiegel, Gy Gilson and Sheriff Gillespie.
The true story has never been told before and Jennifer believed the time had come to archive these interviews and testimonies for the public record for the next generation.
This year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Travis Walton 1975 incident. This will be celebrated with a 40th anniversary Conference in Arizona, including a tour to the actual forest incident and abduction location and a three-day UFO conference with top experts in the field. The film will be shown as part of this event.
For more information about the conference visit: SkyFireSummit.com. Currently last year’s conference details are posted. The website will be updated shortly. For more information about the film visit: TravisWaltonTheMovie.com. Copies of the film will be available for sale at OnwingesProductions.com after the middle of April 2015. Screenings can be arranged by contacting Jennifer Stein through her web site.
Jennifer is also a State Section Director for Pennsylvania MUFON.
One of our most precious assets as an organization is our Field Investigator force. Truly, much if not all the heavy lifting done at MUFON is done by MUFON Field Investigators. Our files would not be brimming with cases, and those cases would not be as valuable as they are, without the hard work of dedicated Field Investigators validating witnesses and witness testimony, and working to solve each and every case.
For this reason that I am pleased to announce the creation of an important new position in MUFON, the Director of Field Investigator Development and Training. This new position will be responsible for not only our FI curriculum, but also for developing our Field Investigator force to be the very best in the world.
This new position will be responsible for creating entry level, intermediate, and advanced FI curriculums; overseeing the growth and development of all new, and seasoned FIs in the field; as well as ensuring that the proper recognition and rewards system is put in place to recognize our best and our brightest, and to encourage personal development along the way.
It is my pleasure today to announce that Fletcher Gray has accepted the position of Director of FI Development and Training effective immediately reporting to our Director of Investigations, Steve Hudgeons.
Please join me in congratulating Fletcher on his new assignment and wishing him well in this important endeavor. I know he will welcome your support in making this new opportunity a huge success for all of us at MUFON.
