I am delighted to announce that Luis Elizondo will be our keynote speaker at the 2018 MUFON Symposium. As most of you know Luis was the man in charge of the Pentagon UFO program revealed December 16, 2017, in a front-page article in The New York Times. I have had the privilege to speak with Luis several times over the past many months and find him to be an exceptionally bright, compassionate, and articulate champion of the UFO cause—something we are all very much interested in. Late last year, Luis left his comfortable government employment to join To The Stars Academy (TTSA) as Director of Global Security and Special Programs, and has quickly become a worldwide sensation as the main spokesperson for the organization.
According to the TTSA website, Luis was a career intelligence officer whose experience includes working with the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense, the National Counterintelligence Executive, and the Director of National Intelligence. As a former special agent in charge, Luis conducted highly sensitive espionage and terrorism investigations around the world. As an intelligence case officer, he ran clandestine source operations throughout Latin America and the Middle East. Most recently, Luis managed the security for certain sensitive portfolios for the U.S. government as the Director for the National Programs Special Management Staff. For nearly the last decade, Luis also ran a sensitive aerospace threat identification program focusing on unidentified aerial technologies. Luis’s academic background includes microbiology, immunology and parasitology, with research in tropical diseases. Luis is also an inventor who holds several patents.
Chase Kloetzke, our recently announced Director of Investigations, had the opportunity to interview Luis on his role at AATIP and his plans going forward with TTSA, and you as MUFON members get to read all about it in the feature article of this month’s MUFON Journal. The mission of the new TTSA organization is to “Strive to be a powerful vehicle for change by creating a consortium among science, aerospace and entertainment that will work collectively to allow gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the infrastructure and resources to rapidly transition them to products that can change the world.” Sounds a lot like the MUFON mission statement, The Scientific Study of UFOs for the Benefit of Humanity, since this “exotic” science and technology are coming directly from the study of UFOs. This is what it is all about, and why we do what we do as an international organization investigating UFO sightings and doing UFO research. It is finally, after long last, all coming together.
Come hear Luis firsthand at the 2018 MUFON Symposium. You’ll have a chance to meet and speak with him, and ask those burning questions you have on your mind. It will truly be a life-changing experience for you, I will promise you that.
