Mission Statement

The mission of Forty Plus of Central Ohio is to educate persons previously holding administrative, executive, technical, managerial, professional and other positions of responsibility in the necessary skills for a successful job search, career change, or career advancement.

We are also responsible for educating the public and the business community on the value of maturity, experience, knowledge and judgment in the work place.


Forty Plus has its origin in New York City in 1939. The New York organization’s first Advisory Board included well-known business and societal leaders of the period: Thomas J. Watson, president and founder of IBM; James Cash Penney, founder of J.C. Penney & Co.; Arthur Godfrey, the radio and TV personality; and Norman Vincent Peale, a minister, inspirational speaker, and author of "The Power of Positive Thinking."
