Meet Former Boston Globe Economics Columnist David Warsh March 24 (or just come to socialize!)

ASBPE Boston and the Society for Professional Journalists (SPJ) New England chapter, are joining together to sponsor an informal “meeting within a meeting” at the regular Media Chowder get together, held at Sidney’s Grille in the Le Meridien Hotel in Cambridge, Mass.

Media Chowder — which likes to style itself as “the most dangerous group of journalists and media professionals in Boston!” is an informal networking group that meets monthly to talk shop, drink liquor and otherwise try to build a sense of professional camaraderie for those in the business.
