This year's NomCom members are: Board of Trustee members Timothy Denton and Scott Bradner, Advisory Council members Chris Grundemann and Kevin Blumberg, and general member volunteers Stephen Middleton, Justin Clutter, and Peter Rocca.

Board members Paul Andersen and Scott Bradner, and  Advisory Council representatives Stacy Hughes, Chris Morrow, Bill Sandiford, Robert Seastrom, and Heather Schiller will conclude their current terms on 31 December 2012.  ARIN Board and Advisory Council incumbents may be re-elected for consecutive terms.
