Annual Meeting & Expo

The Metro South Chamber Annual Meeting & Business Expo is proud to thanks the hundreds of attendees and Steve Greene for a successful Annual Meeting and Business Expo!

104th Annual Meeting & Expo: November 15, 2017

This year’s keynote speaker was Ted Reinstein, author and Chronicle reporter. Ted Reinstein is best known in New England as a journalist and reporter for Chronicle, Boston’s celebrated (and America’s longest-running, locally-produced) TV news-magazine. In 2002, he was part of the Chronicle team honored with a prestigious national DuPont-Columbia Broadcast Journalism Award for their coverage of Boston’s controversial “Big Dig,” the nation’s largest-ever public works project.  Politics is also a passion, and he files a weekly report for WCVB’s political roundtable show, “On The Record.”

His first book, A New England Notebook: One Reporter, Six States, Uncommon Stories, was published in 2013 (Globe Pequot Press). National Geographic Traveler selected it as one of its “Best Picks.” In April 2016, GPP released his second book, Wicked Pissed: New England’s Most Famous Feuds. Ted’s newest book, written in collaboration with his wife, former ABC journalist Anne-Marie Dorning, is New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic (Globe Pequot Press/Sept. 2017).  Ted also has had a lifetime love of live theatre. As a playwright, he’s had several short plays selected and performed for Boston’s annual Theatre Marathon, and is the co-author of the full-length play, Yom Kippur in Da Nang.

 BUSINESS-2- BUSINESS EXPO: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm • 1:30pm – 3:00 pm
The Business-2-Business Expo is a great opportunity to reach five hundred business people throughout the Metro South region.

It is the right place, the right time, and the right audience.
