The 2013 MUFON Symposium was held in Las Vegas, Nevada and Open Minds was there. The theme was Science, UFOs, and the Search for ET. Alejandro Rojas interviewed many of the speakers and MUFON personnel. Two big stories from the conference was the announcement of a new International Director for MUFON, and the partnership between MUFON and France’s GEIPAN. GEIPAN is France’s official UFO investigation organization. It is a part of the CNES, France’s space organization, similar to NASA here in the US.
There is no partnership between GEIPAN and MUFON. If any one said so at the conference, this is a confusion made between this person's activities and the one of GEIPAN.
The redaction of the comment is misleading. If you listen to the video, the GEIPAN consultant (?) does not mention any collaboration with MUFON. The MUFON representative says he is planning to collaborate on his side. So, the mention of some 'partnership' has absolutely no basis.
