Professional Development Grant: Certified Interpretive Manager (CIM) Grant NCDA Section members are invited to apply for a $125 grant to cover costs for the Certified Interpretive Manager Certification. This year, the NCDA Section will offer two $125 grants. Applicants must be individual NAI members and a member of the NCDA Section. This certification is for someone who manages an interpretive facility, supervises staff, prepares budgets, or is otherwise responsible for daily operations of an interpretive site.
Once the recipient receives the packet, you must commit to completing the written certification test and provide evidences of performance to the NAI Certification Program as required by October 31. Certification is granted upon successful completion of the test and successful review of the required evidences of performance. (The NCDA Section is not responsible for evaluating or granting certification.) Grant applications can be submitted at any time during the current (2020 postmark) calendar year. Applications are evaluated as received and grants are awarded until the total dollars budgeted for the year are distributed. Applications submitted after certification grant funds for the year have been exhausted must be updated and resubmitted in the next calendar year.
