We are happy to once again be a sponsor of the Paso Robles Rotary Winemakers’ Cookoff. This is a really fun event and should be on your calendar every year.
The Paso Robles Rotary brings top winemakers together to compete to see who is the best chef.
The 18th Annual Winemakers’ Cookoff will be held Aug. 13, 2016, from 6-9 p.m. at the Paso Robles Event Center. See their website for tickets and more information.
And we’ll see you there!
Members of the Carmel & Naccasha team started their Sunday morning with a run through the Talley Vineyards at the 23rd Annual Marianne Talley Fun Run. We had a great time and can’t wait to see you there next year. Thanks to the Talley Family for being such great hosts.
Carmel & Naccasha Managing Partner Ziyad Naccasha recently attended ‘A Conversation with…Bill Swanson’ hosted by the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce.
A Cal Poly magna cum laude industrial engineering graduate, Mr. Swanson retired as the CEO of Raytheon Corporation in 2014 after 42-plus years with the company.
Renee Mosier, wife of Carmel & Naccasha partner Dallas Mosier, was asked to speak at Good Morning SLO in May. Renee spoke about the ‘cash mob’ she has organized to help local businesses. She alerts a group of people (friends, family, business associates, and their invitees) to meet at a local business at a specified time and date. The ‘mob’ shops, eats, drinks, and generally get to know the business. As a secondary benefit, the gatherings can provide social and business networking opportunities for the attendees.
Renee was asked to speak about her experience in hopes that more people would create similar groups and help their favorite local businesses. Great job Renee!
Carmel & Naccasha was pleased to sponsored a table at the 2016 State of the North County event on May 13, 2016. Interesting talks by Pat Mullen of PG&E, new Paso City Manager Tom Frutchey, Atascadero City Manager Rachelle Rickard, Stirling Price of Atascadero State Hospital, Mayor Tom O’Malley of Atascadero and Mayor Steve Martin of Paso Robles. Mark Lisa of Twin Cities Community Hospital was an entertaining master of ceremonies.
Thanks to the Paso Robles and Atascadero Chambers of Commerce for organizing such an informative event. Lots of things happening in the North County and we are glad to be a part of it.
Our block of Marsh Street is closed to through traffic during the construction on San Luis Drive. Recently, a delivery truck was going too fast to make the turn at the Road Closed sign and decided to use our driveway instead. He whipped in to the driveway, failed to notice the overhead lines and snagged them. SLO Fire was here almost immediately and let us know that the truck was caught on the phone and cable lines, but not power. One call to Norcast Telecom Networks and Jeff Buckingham appeared on the scene. Jeff worked with SLO Fire and the truck was moved. Many thanks to Jeff and the Norcast team, SLO Fire, and SLO PD. They were amazing! Just another reminder to do business with a local provider.
Founding Partner Ziyad Naccasha traveled with a group from the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce to New York City this past November and attended the World Business Forum. Read his ‘takeaway’ from the event as well as those of Scott Dawson of the Orfalea College of Business at Cal Poly, Kris Yetter President and General Manager of Promega Biosciences and Noreen Martin CEO of Martin Resorts.
Dallas was nominated by one of his peers to be considered for the annual award recognizing young San Luis Obispo County professionals who have demonstrated professional excellence and a commitment of serving the community. Seventy-five nominations were received for this round of Top 20 under 40 Awards.
Dallas joined Carmel & Naccasha in 2012 and was promoted from associate attorney to partner in November 2015.
Winners will be honored with an award at a luncheon on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at Madonna Inn.
