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. Timothy Denton is serving as NomCom Chair.

New Board and Advisory Council terms begin 1 January 2013. 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. Louie Lee’s seat for the NRO NC also becomes open this year. Incumbents may be re-elected for consecutive terms.
