Jan Harzan on

Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact from the



Jan Harzan’s interest in UFOs began at the age of 8 when he read an article on Donald Keyhoe and NICAP in Argosy magazine. This was the start of a lifelong interest. As part of his drive to solve the mystery of UFO propulsion, Jan attended UCLA School of Engineering and received his B.S. in Nuclear Engineering. After college, he began working for IBM, thinking that only a company of IBM’s stature and ability to fund basic research could solve this problem. Harzan spent 37 years with IBM in sales and marketing as an executive, before retiring to become the Executive Director of MUFON.

Jan began attending MUFON meetings in 1991. In 1995, he was appointed the State Section Director of MUFON OC. After a successful MUFON Symposium in Irvine in 2001, he was elected to the MUFON Business Board. In this role, Jan was instrumental in leading MUFON’s Strategic Planning, which resulted in the group’s current mission statement and organizational goals, and the creation of the Case Management System (CMS), which is used for case reporting, tracking, and investigation follow-up.

Since taking charge of MUFON in 2013, longtime MUFON member and  experiencer Jan Harzan has reshaped the organization–focusing on documenting cases of possible extraterrestrial contact, with an emphasis on taking the UFO subject mainstream. How has this been done? Come find out, as Jan shares the inner workings of MUFON. He’ll give us an overview of the best cases of Structured UFO craft from the MUFON Files, which should impress even the toughest skeptic. Jan will also share the details of his own close encounter with a UFO. This is a talk you won’t want to miss!
