On The Beat Industry News In Brief

A movement is afoot to professionalize the grant-writing trade.

The Indiana Chapter of the American Association of Grant Professionals is hosting a certification exam March 20 at Ivy Tech Community College. Those who pass will earn the Grant Professional Certified designation.

“Similar to the Certified Fund Raising Executive credential administered by CFRE International and the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the GPC is the only credential of its kind to measure the competency level of grant professionals today,” said Arvetta Jideonwo, a member of the Grant Professional Certification Institute’s board and chairwoman of the Indianapolis exam.

At this point, there are only nine GPC-designated grant writers in the state.

Those who would like to join the few and the proud must meet eligibility requirements for education, experience, professional development and community involvement.

The fee for the four-hour exam is $525.

The American Association of Grant Professionals is based in Kansas City, Kan.
