NARCAP has been effective for some very specific reasons and, as an administrator vs a researcher, Ted Roe has some insights about this. He is a co-founder and the Executive Director of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena, NARCAP.org, which was established in 1999. He was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana during the 1960s and 70s and his interest in UAP and UAP research arose from local events and direct experience. Alongside his work with Dr. Richard Haines and the team at NARCAP, he has established and administrates the International Association of UAP Researchers, IAUAPR.org. Currently he resides on the Big Island, Hawaii, where he teaches freediving, martial arts (Iaido), and Zen meditation in addition to his duties administrating NARCAP.org and IAUAPR.org.

Former MUFON Chief Investigator, Star Team Investigator, and State Section Director.

Former Law Enforcement Officer

Butch has been an Independent Researcher since 1989 when he, along with 4 other people, witnessed a UFO of unbelievable size quietly hover above a mountain in Tucson, Arizona.  It was totally silent. Burn Copper in color and at least three football fields in length. Butch began his own investigation into the UFO Phenomenon on that day.

Joining MUFON in 2007, Witkowski was able to dig deeper into past and existing cases and pursue even more on site investigations, but his research was still lacking something and he wasn’t getting to the crucial answers that he was seeking.

It was time to go about this work in a different manner, and after almost a year of serious reflection and consideration, Butch started the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania in 2009 and brought together some of the best like-minded and long time researchers he could find.

You may have heard her on the airwaves in Louisville, Lexington, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Tampa/St. Pete or Orlando. With a BA in Broadcast Journalism focusing on film, performance, and psychology from the University of Kentucky, she has a unique style of interviewing. Being dubbed a conversationalist, she genuinely enjoys discussing topics and contributes to the conversation of those she interviews.

Connie is a serious student of high strangeness, having her own experiences since the early age of three. These experiences left her with strong desires to find the truth of those phenomena. As a woman, her perspective is as much emotional as it is factual, which goes hand in hand. She has interviewed many people in her life and is best known for going into the field of research to experience it for herself.

Connie enjoys digging deep into mysteries surrounding the inexplicable effects and synchronicity of events related to UFO and extraterrestrial encounters as well as anything outside the range of normal human knowledge or scientific explanation including time travel, cryptozoology, telepathy, Mayan culture, crop circles, the after life, ghosts, hybrids, radionics, psychic spies, super soldiers, and other esoteric topics. Due to her passion to know the truth, she researches these strange anomalies, attempting to connect the dots and find the answer.

Connie is always interested and eager to join exceptional research teams, even coordinating her own “off the beaten path” special projects. In fact, she is a Certified Advance Controlled Remote Viewer taught under the direction of Lyn Buchanan, one of the military’s top ‘Psychic Spies’ from the top-secret program, Project Stargate. She took the classes to see if remote viewing was real, she now believes!

 Guest Jan C. Harzan, MUFON Executive Director

Jan C. HarzanJan recently retired from IBM after 37 years in the Information Technology business. Jan’s interest in UFOs began at the age of 8 when he read an article on Donald Keyhoe and NICAP in Argosy magazine. Based on this and other research he and his brother did over the next two years, they made the decision to build a flying saucer believing that electromagnetic propulsion was the key to how these craft were able to travel such great distances. While in the process of doing this, they were visited by a real UFO, no more than thirty feet from them, with no visible means of propulsion other than making a humming noise, before shooting off over the horizon. This event profoundly changed their lives. As a result of this experience, Jan pursued finding the answer to the technology these craft display believing that a breakthrough would revolutionize transportation and energy on our planet. As part of his drive to find the answer, Jan attended UCLA School of Engineering and received his B.S. in Nuclear Engineering. After college, he was hired by IBM, thinking that only a company of IBM’s stature and funding in basic research could solve this problem. 37 years later, Jan is still looking for the answer to how all this works. As a member of the MUFON Business Board Jan has been instrumental in leading MUFON’s Strategic Planning, as well as creating the Case Management System (CMS) used for UFO reporting, tracking, and investigative follow-up. Jan currently resides in Newport Beach, California, with his wife, Annette, and their two children. Jan was named Executive Director of MUFON on August 1, 2013.  (source)
