Last year I wrote about the MUFON Inner Circle and offered some criticism about a couple of the members. There was something of a debate about what exactly the Inner Circle was and what sort of influence it might have over the MUFON leadership and the directions the organization was taking. I published the list of the members which was no big deal because they could be found at the MUFON website. Periodically I had been looking to see if the membership of the Inner Circle changed.
And what I found was that it had. I do not know the reasons for the change but suspect it might have to do with the hefty price tag for membership. As of April 29, 2018, these are the members of the Inner Circle:
Ed L’Heureux, David MacDonald, Clifford Clift, Efroymson Family Fund, Jennifer Stein, Jan C. Harzan, John Schuessler, Debbie Ziegelmeyer, John Grace, Michael Limotte, Cindy Dupont and Holly Baker.
About the only comment I have here is that I wonder if Jan Harzan is
a member because
he is the Executive Director or if he kicked in the five grand. None of my
business really, and if he is in because he is the Executive Director, that
makes sense. One of the benefits are consultations with the Executive Director…
besides, membership might be a perk of holding the title. As I say, not really
any of my business and I mention it only out of idle curiosity.
At the moment, these are the members. Twelve of them, as there were last year, but I think of that as more of a coincidence than a design. Anyone willing to fork over the fee can probably join the Inner Circle and I say, if I had the money laying around, I might give it a shot, just to see what it was like.
