Dan Juneau
Louisiana Association of Business and Industry President (LABI)

Dan Juneau has been president of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry since 1989. He has spent over a quarter of a century fighting for key reforms necessary to improve Louisiana’s business climate and strengthen its economy.

Dan understands the challenges facing businesses at the local level from the perspective he gained by serving as general manager of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce for 14 years. On the national level, he was twice elected by his peers to serve as Chairman of the Council of State Chambers of Commerce, and he currently serves as Vice Chairman of the Council of State Manufacturers Association (COSMA).

Dan and LABI have worked forcefully to improve education at all levels in Louisiana. Juneau is a strong supporter of alternative education and serves as the Chairman of the School Improvement Team at Northdale Magnet Academy, one of Louisiana’s first alternative high schools for at-risk youth. Dan is also a member of the governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission for Educational Excellence and, in addition to promoting educational choices for parents, Dan works hard to get qualified people into the classrooms by supporting alternative teaching programs such as those offered by Teach for America and The New Teacher Project.

Juneau feels that intervention in the legislative arena is a must for economic development and business success, and he firmly believes that an organized, unified approach from all sectors of the business community is the key to success at the Legislature.

Dan, and his wife Charmaine, have three children and two grandchildren.
