Our mission:  

The mission of 40Plus of Greater Washington is to help experienced professionals know and effectively communicate their value with confidence in securing a new position or changing careers.

Our vision:  

40Plus is a community connecting individuals to share experiences, support and resources throughout our careers.

Our Beginnings:

40Plus was founded during the Great Depression.  In 1939, Henry Simler, an executive with the Remington Rand company, created a “40 Plus Committee” at New York City’s Sales Executive Club to help over-40 executives who were having difficulty finding jobs.

Four American giants formed the New York organization’s first Advisory Board: Tom Watson, president and founder of IBM; James Cash Penney, founder of J.C. Penney & Co.; Arthur Godfrey, popular radio and TV personality; and Norman Vincent Peale, minister, inspirational speaker, and author of The Power of Positive Thinking. The concept spread to cities throughout the U.S.

They realized that a program combining training, motivation, and support, led by and for unemployed people, would work wonders.  That's still true today.
