Kathleen Forbes


Name:  Kathleen R. Forbes

Job title:  Director of Program Development

Employed by:  Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce

What I like most about my job:  I love everything about my job from the planning and execution of programs and events to strategizing on how to improve the efficiency of processes.  What can I say, I love a good plan, and I love even more watching it come to fruition. 

My goals for National Philanthropy Day this year are to: Have a speaker that “wows” the audience and make our award winners feel like they won the lottery. 

I'm originally from:  Reston, VA (just outside of Washington, DC)

My hobbies include:  I am a mom of two young children, I didn’t have time for hobbies! 

Something my AFP colleagues might not know about me is:  I love country music!

If I had one week to do anything I wanted, I would:  Tough one-I am going to need three weeks.  Week 1: My husband and I would take my our children to Disney World.  Week 2: Sit on Sullivan’s with my toes in the water reading books (I don’t know when I last read a book cover to cover)  Week 3:  Cleaning and reorganizing my house, uninterrupted.
