PABI was formed in June of 2004 by a group of business owners who recognized the need for the business community to have an active voice in the Parish. PABI is made up of Officers, Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, and its Members. These Members pay yearly dues and have the opportunity to voice their concerns at the monthly meetings. Monthly meetings are held to discuss a variety of topics of interest to Plaquemines Parish business owners.
PABI has and always will work closely with Government Officials and other Economic Organizations in the region to promote economic development in the Parish. PABI continues to seek growth for the association. If you are interested in having your voice heard for your business, please contact us.

Thank you,
The Members of PABI

 

 


Our Association membership of business and professionals has continued to grow and is now approximately 200. Our members include multinational corporations as well as many small business owners. PABI is a non-profit, non-governmental affiliated organization financed entirely by the investment of membership dues and is led by an all-volunteer board elected from the general membership. read more
