It is a little out of date and not terribly detailed but they did post  
the 2008 budget at:

https://www.arin.net/about_us/corp_docs/budget.html

Budget is just over 13M.  About 1/2 of that is salaries/benefits  
(maybe more if you add in 'legal fees').

A couple of interesting notes when looking at it:

12+M divided by the 3300 "members" is just shy of $4,000 per customer.

Payroll is $5,707,134 for 47 full time employees.  That is an average  
salary of $121,428 across all employees.

Internet Research and Support is $164,500

Travel (which includes travel for board members, etc) is $1,315,349.

There is more detail but older data at:
