What is Forward Worthington?

Forward Worthington is a non-profit volunteer organization of businesses and individuals who ban together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial and civic interests of our community in an effort to expand the economy of the area.

Forward Worthington is the vehicle through which members can accomplish collectively what they could not do individually. Forward Worthington’s strength lies in attracting the greatest number of individuals and firms into membership, creating a pool of resources from which to draw ideas, energy and finances.

Forward Worthington is not a department of the city, county or state government; it is not a social service or charitable institution it is not a private advertising, publicity or public relations agency. It is staffed with qualified people who know how to utilize all the resources for the best interest of its members.

What is the Forward Worthington?

The Forward Worthington purpose is to sell the Worthington area as a site for conventions and business conferences/meetings; increase the number of visitors to Worthington and improve services and events to travelers, conventions, and residents; develop and promote attractions and special events in and to the Worthington area.
