The President/CEO of Event Planet Inc., and Founder of Miss Nepal USA 2011, Mr. Amit Shah also officially announced the core team members for the 2012 pageant.

Mr. Shah, on behalf of the organizers, informed the media about the change in title of Miss Nepal USA to Miss Nepal US for this year. When approached the United States Patent and Trademark Office last year to register the title Miss Nepal USA, the Miss Universe Organization objected to the name as they felt that as Miss USA is their registered trademark using any combination of Miss USA will be confusing and misleading to their concerned stakeholders. Although this is an organizational opinion, we will wait for the final verdict from United States Patent and Trademark Office which can take 6 to 18 months to take the decision. Meanwhile based on the advice from our legal team we have decided to change the title as Miss Nepal US (AKA Miss Nepal USA) until we hear from United States Patent and Trademark Office on our application. Mr. Shah further added that in light of the no-objection by the Miss Universe Organization they have also initiated the trade mark application for the use of Miss Nepal US title as well.

The announcement ceremony of Miss Nepal US 2012 held on Western Plus Hotel, MD was hosted by Jolly Amatya. Miss Nepal USA 2011 Sujita Basnet, 1st Runner Up Tilasmi Bista, 2nd Runner Up Nabina Basnet who will also be official brand ambassadors for upcoming Miss Nepal US 2012 were also present. Hundreds of distinguished community leaders/members and other respected guests led by Honorary Council General of Nepal Embassy to USA- Prem Raja Mahat, met and shared their ideas to make this event a grand success.
