I am working on a project with The International Metaphysical University
If you remember I was very interested in the International Metaphysical University.
I am currently working with them to see what we can do together to enhance the learning experience of people who are interested in Ufology as a academic following. This has been a subject that deserves acreditation and I am in full support of what this University is trying to do. So as I receive new information from them, I will post it here so you too will know what they are doing for you.
WE are moving toward a future in space and I see the potential for careeers that have yet to be created. Ones that will be sought after by the companies that will be developing jobs that will require a vast knowledge of metaphysics. We are moving rapidly toward this momnet and I am paying close attention to this. Soon companies will be looking for people just like us. I believe that attaining those skills is very important and this is the place to aquire them. So read this piece of information and start checking out what may be a new career for you or your children. Enjoy

As 2010 closes out I want to take just a moment and say thank you to everyone who has made North Dakota MUFON such a great organization. I have always felt that being a State Director has a tremendous amount of responsibility and now I know first hand just how true that is. That responsibility becomes easier when you have great people supporting you. That is exactly how I feel and I couldn't be any happier about that. North Dakota has so much to offer, and I really want us to shine at both the state and national level. I will be working very hard to make that happen and I encourage all of you to help get that word out to the public. I am working on a theme for 2011 and that is " It is OK to report what you saw" my goal as both a State Director and someone who has been a witness, is to ensure that " It is OK to report what you saw" and feel comfort in knowing that you are not alone, and that ridicule by others about it will not be tolerated. I am passionate about this and it will show as we move forward with this.
There is no valid reason for you to withhold reporting what you witnessed. I say that because I will stand beside you and everyone else will too. The only way that this stigma will change, is if we stand together and support each other. You need to know that you are not alone. You also need to know that you have the full support from the people who have stood in your shoes and have seen and experienced what you have. We will be a family of people who have experienced something unique. Each sighting is important. Every time a sighting is reported, it supports all of the witnesses who are just like you.
We can make a difference. We can help show the world that what we witnessed was real and is real. I know it, and you do too. Help me make 2011 the year that the truth comes out. I look forward to making 2011 the year that changed everything.:)

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend the informational event on the 12th of Dec.
Dale seemed rather pleased with the amount of interest that was received. I will try and post his thoughts on that event as soon as I get them ready.
I would also like to say a big Thank You to everyone who attended the meeting on the 19th of Dec. Since this was my first meeting as State Director, it was very heart warming to look out into the room and see people who were excited to be there and I think the level of discussion showed that. Dale has done an awesome job of getting the word out about these meetings and I could not be more happy about that.
I will post the links to the videos that we showed. I think our new format of showing shorter video clips and allowing more time for discussion is the way to go. I am a firm believer that you should be able to ask questions and receive answers to them. I am not an expert on anything and will be the first to tell you that. I will find the answers to the questions that I can not answer.
I know that as we move forward, that more of you who have had experiences, will come forward and I encourage it. I also want you to think about anyone you may know that has had an experience and encourage them to come to our meetings. I think it is so important for anyone who has had experiences to be able to share them with others who also have had them. I would very much like to create that atmosphere where you feel safe and among those who understand what it is like to have these experiences. I encourage everyone to come and ask questions. We shall all work together to make this a great organization. One that you can be proud to belong to.
I am very proud of the work that we are doing, and as we expand to other parts of the state, we will grow stronger in spirit and our lives will become richer.
MUFON's Director of Investigations; Marie Malzahn, was disappointed that she could not be there and will reschedule for a time in the future. We will be looking forward to that visit.
To recap some of the topics that we discussed
My responsibilities as State Director.
MUFON's Mission and Goals. (A video by MUFON's John Schuessler)
What makes MUFON so special ( new projects: University project, web conferencing and presentations, new technology for investigations)
MUFON's website ( which has recovered from it's server crash)
How important scientific method is to investigation ( Dr. Robert Wood Video )
My wife's and my sighting
Reporting sightings that happened a long time ago
A breakdown of sightings by state and number
The Tappen Case
Trace Evidence ( Ted Philips Video)
More items than I can remember ( Charlie's brain has all of these items stored, it just might take a while to retrieve them)
I also want to welcome those of you who joined MUFON at this meeting. It will be a pleasure working with you.
All in all, I know that by sharing our events and supporting MUFON we will have a very bright future.
Thank you, to all of you

APRIL 2ND 2010 MEETING---The public meeting event held at the Bismarck Public Library on April 2nd 2010 is in the record books! The event was opened with a report by Dale J. Brown(recently appointed as Assistant State Director for MUFON of North Dakota) on the sightings received by MUFON for the month of may 2010 . The information was a break down of events by state as well as type ,landings,and entities reported. This was followed by a presentation by one of our newest field investigators and newly appointed State Section Director Larry Gessner. Our congratulations go out to Larry for those appointments! Larry's presentation was on the 10 things to do if you see a U.F.O.. Valuable information and advice was given,advice that would be well worth putting into use in the event that it is needed. Report form 1 was the next topic of discussion with a short presentation by Dale J. Brown to familiarize our guests with the MUFON report form pages (3 in all). Next our feature presentation;a video from MUFON's 2009 international symposium entitled "A 20-year longitudinal study of U.F.O.'s: What the Canadian U.F.O.study tells us about U.F.O. reports" by Chris Rutkowski was shown.Interesting information,particularly for the number crunching crowd! We were also proud to announce our latest addition to the North Dakota Chapter of MUFON's investigative team: A newly qualified field investigator who shall remain anonymous until I can secure his permission to use his name on this site. This brings our total of qualified field investigators up to 4! A significant growth of our investigative abilities in a short period of time. A two pronged approach is being launched to complete as many of our open cases A.S.A.P. A question and answer session followed and our meeting then came to a close. As always,refreshments were provided. There were 19 persons in attendance. At the time of this posting,we are looking at May 16th 2010 as the date of our next staff/member meeting. I will be contacting staff and members as soon as a date/time/place has been chosen.

D.Brown-MUFON N.D.Field Investigator 11:26 PM on March 24, 2010 The public meeting event held at the Bismarck Public Library By MUFON of N.D. on March 14th was a huge success in terms of public participation and discussion. The Video Presentation of Ted Phillips' Dramatic changes in trace/landing events ( from the 2009 international symposium proceedings ) was well received. 17 persons were in attendance, most of them new faces whom we hope to see again at future events. A corrective statement had to be made ( by me) as to Larry Gessner having not yet received his field investigator credentials as I had mistakenly stated in the previous meeting. We are hopeful and confident that Mr. Gessner will receive those credentials soon as he is currently working toward that goal. Mention was made (by me) that some internet servers were under hi-jacked links on MUFONs UFO stalker pages. There appears to be rogue religious fundamentalists elements who have hi-jacked certain links on those pages to redirect internet traffic to sites that support christian fundamentalist ideologies. Mufon does not support ANY religious ideology ...and religious views expressed from the for-mentioned links are not (to my knowledge) the views of MUFON international. As of the date of this posting, preliminary steps are being taken to arrange the next member meeting. I encourage all members to attend, if possible ,to bring your ideas to the table and make your voice heard. I will be contacting members as soon as a date/time/place has been chosen.
