Chaldean Leaders around the World Gather in California
By Sam Yousif :: 15171 Views :: Article Rating :: Government & Society, Chaldean American Professionals

Californai, USA - Chaldean leaders from around the world recently met in Rancho San Diego, California to discuss the ongoing challenges the Christians of Iraq continue to face.  Frustrated over the lack of support and reluctance to support Christians of the Middle East, the representatives gathered to discuss options.  Chaldean leaders from as far as Australia, Canada, UK, Syria, Jordon, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Mexico, Norway, and the US made up over 15 countries of delegates.  A historic gathering they called it. The first of its kind -- at least in modern memory, they said.

More than 300 people attended the local conference, which took place March 30 and April 1.  Including Ambassador Peter Bodde, assistant chief with the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, spoke at the conference.  Bodde told the group that the U.S. government is working to safeguard Chaldeans and other minority communities in Iraq. A U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state also attended, telling the group that the Obama administration has requested funds from Congress to promote the safety of Christians in Iraq.

Former Politico Makes Community Impact in New Ways
By Guest Reporter :: 10747 Views :: Article Rating :: Chaldean American Professionals

California, USA - From his sixth floor executive office window, Sam Attisha has an unobstructed view of the action on the Padres home field at Petco Park, which, by the way, is 7,713 miles from where Attisha was born 42 years ago — in the fabled, now troubled, capital of Iraq, Baghdad.

Attisha is vice president of business development and external affairs for Cox Communications San Diego.

He was recently named one of San Diego’s Top Influentials by The Daily Transcript newspaper, a plaudit he appreciates, but had to laugh, “It still doesn’t get me much influence over my three boys and my wife.”

Attisha is a combination of outgoing (“You have to be in this job”) and laid-back (enjoying hanging out with his three young sons). He’s tall, 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, with brown eyes, olive complexion, and a bald, neatly shaved head.

Michigan's Best Weddings by Dalia Voting Begins
By David Najor :: 19543 Views :: Article Rating :: Business & Finance, Chaldean American Professionals


Michigan, USA - It goes without saying that the Chaldean community holds remarkable wedding events.  Rich in Catholic tradition and Chaldean heritage these incredible events require a competent and experienced professional.  The planning that goes into such affairs are overwhelming.  Hiring an expert who has the right connections with the best vendors, has learned to become an ace negotiator to get you the best value or 'deal' for your money, and knows where to find all those unique and dazzling touches to transform your wedding into an absolute fantasy.

It was not so long ago that wedding consultants were thought of as a luxury to be used mainly by the wealthy and elite. Times have changed.  According to Modern Bride Magazine, over 50% of all American couples who married in 1999 used the services of wedding consultants, also commonly referred to as wedding coordinators, bridal consultants, and wedding planners.  In the Chaldean community that percentage is even higher and continues to rise. 

In Michigan, one impressive Chaldean wedding expert continues to wow the community and critics alike.  Weddings by Dalia, continues to win awards and is now in the finals for Michigan’s best of 2008.  The firm placed 5th best in 2007 and now is poised to be the top rated. 

The Chaldean community is showing their support by visiting the online voting booth  and casting Weddings by Dalia as their best choice for Wedding and event consultation.  On the site supporters like Nuha Roumayah, Sarah Eskander, Melody Kouza, Vonica Abouna, Jennifer Shunyia, Merfit Yaldo, and Joe Bahri applaud her amazing work, creativity, organization, and insight.

What Makes Your Business Different?
By David Najor :: 24806 Views :: Article Rating :: Business & Finance, Opinion and Editorials, Chaldean American Professionals

Every Chaldean business entrepreneur is in business to make a profit.  That means having customers, and lots of them.  It goes without saying that location is important.  Having a hotel by an airport, business district, or entertainment district is a “no brainer”.    Opening a store at the crossroads of a busy intersection or highly dense residential area is just as simple.  So simple that you will find four convenient stores facing one another or two hotels across the street from one another.  Location is one of the primary deciding factors for guests. 

If the hotels are next door to each other; one isn’t closer to the airport.  One isn’t closer to downtown. If the location could sustain a million dollars in sales and there are four stores vying for that million we can safely estimate $250,000 each.  Can we?  Will each business operate the same?  Will each owner carry the same goods or offer the same service?  Drive by any corner crowded with businesses and you would be stunned at how similar they are.  There is nothing unique about any of them.  They are virtually indistinguishable from each other.

Limited business entrepreneurs turn to the easiest solutions to differentiate their business.   Lower prices or give more goods away.  This simplistic solution may be a good short term solution but in the long run hurts the business.   The long term fix for any Chaldean business owner is to differentiate their business by offering better service and developing meaningful customer relationships.

And this is how to do it…..
