On Tuesday January 12, 2010 James Carrion announced he is stepping down as the MUFON International Director and assuming the position of MUFON Business Manager. This announcement does not come as much of a shock after speculated rumors of a change in organization have flooded the internet for months.
Carrion expressed that he will also continue to do independent UFO research focusing on the role of Government in t he UFO field. His personal blog Follow the Magic Thread will continue to document his opinions and research in the UFO field.
The Mutual UFO Network was founded in 1969 with the mission to scientifically study UFOs for the benefit of humanity. Over the years MUFON has gained precedence as the largest UFO Network in the world even attracting the respect of Hollywood legend and UFO enthusiast Dan Aykroyd. Currently Aykroyd serves as the Hollywood Consultant for MUFON.
Carrion’s replacement, Clifford Clift, has kept a low profile in the UFO scene serving as the MUFON State Director and is slated to take over beginning March 1, 2010. He will continue to lead MUFON in their core goals of investigating UFO sightings, promoting research on UFOs and to educate the public on the UFO phenomenon.
