|Art Champoux has been an UFO investigator since 1964. He have worked with Ray Fowler, Walter Webb, John Keel, a lady that he can not name, and several different UFO groups. In the 1960s he was with APRO, CAPER, NIACP, then when APRO went out he was with NICAP and then APRO, Now he is with MUFON. The world of the paranormal has always fascinated him as even as a small boy he had some eerie happenings. His Great grandmother was a spirit medium so maybe he has inherited something. He is a hypnotist and has written for several publications and his leanings are much like John Keels. He beleives there is an ultra force, not from outer space, but much like John's and even Jaques Vallees' contention...we are but one dimension out of many that reign on this planet.

"What? NO More MUFON State Organizations?"
by Art Champoux (Copyright © 2009 Art Champoux)Posted: 13:15 January 22, 2009
As of this year, unless something is done about it, the MUFON State groups will have been decimated, if not gone entirely.
How? Who? When?
I will lay it out for you.
This information may sound the death knell for me as a longstanding MUFON investigator. But much like the famous Low memo was...
when the good Dr. Low released "Inside the Condon Report," here it is:
As of 2008, the leader of MUFON, International Director James Carrion, is forcing EVERY MUFON State Director to attend symposiums and meetings all over the country at their own expense!
Yes, you heard it right. To volunteer as a State director, you MUST pay travel fees, motel fess and meal fess in order to become a State Director.
For over 30 years MUFON was the epitome of UFO research.
Now NH MUFON has closed, Mass MUFON is on the way out, and I heard from a reliable source that many other states are leaving MUFON also.
I do not know, but let me speculate (and here may be my death knell):
MUFON is broke. Or, maybe, they already know the answer...
OR they are being pressured to disband.
I hope that I am wrong. But let the "International Director" tell us. After all, he is the leader.
As you may know, I have been doing this for over 40 years. I Love It and have donated many personal hours over the years to UFO investigations. Love it, and never once asked for money, never will.
Now, I know that every organization needs money or they will not survive. There is no wrong in that. But to insist that ALL state directors pay their way to far off places, pay their room and board, meals, and other costs is absurd.
These men and women, directors and volunteers, should be receiving some compensation but NO, they must pay something, even more than before, to help the MUFON organization.
