Google Launching New "GMB Partners" Program?

A couple of weeks ago I was stoked to read on Google's Small Business blog that they are (finally) cracking down on and taking legal action against the dreaded "Posers" :)calling businesses claiming to be Google and threatening to delete their GMB listing unless immediate action be taken now.

Within that post I found great interest in the statement "We’re launching the Google My Business Partners program. The program will give business owners a directory of trusted partners to choose from when they need help managing their listings.".

Does anyone know anything more about this new program? I REALLY want to get in on this but can't find any other mention of it in Google forums.
