I think you should avoid the mainstream UFO associations and go independent, start your own UFO research group. Over time more people will help you run things and you can expand. Just my 2 pennies.edit on 22-9-2011 by JibbyJedi because: (no reason given)

However, I've been a bit frustrated in the last couple of years with difficulties in getting hold of information from such groups and also more than a bit frustrated at the number of emails/letters I've sent to people (inside ufology and outside it) with some query or issue relating to UFOs without getting any response or acknowledgement.

I wonder what drives you to attempt to make first person contact with them other than reap your knowledge from the most recent reports and books on the topic?
You write reasonable well with your OP, but what do you ask in the communications, is it off-the-wall, innane, pertinent or questions of the obvious?

If any group had found a smoking gun, they'd be publishing the evidence.
Possibly your emails would garner more replies with the addition of a reference to one these groups? Only their members could attest to improved responses...
I don't see there being much difference either way.

While I'm flattered by the suggestions that I set up my own group, I don't really have the time or inclination to deal with the administrative side of any such organisation.
