BIRTH OF PHALGA

RA 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government  Code  of 1991  mandates that  all  Provincial,  City and Municipal Government  shall  have  an  accountant  who  shall  take charge of both the accounting and internal audit services of all  local government units concerned

Basically, accountants play a major and significant role in  all  government agencies thus vital and necessary to install a unified  and  solid  organization  of accountants  throughout  the  archipelago. For a start, provincial  associations  were organized like League of Accountants  in  the  Municipalities  of  Batangas, (LAMB) Inc. Laguna Association  of  Local Government Accountants, (LALGA), Inc. and  Association  of  Local Accountants  of  Cavite,  (ALAC), Inc.  At the outset, the desire to organize a national association of LGU Accountants is primordial, hence, attempts were made to make a real noble task to bring forth prestigious association of accountants but failed for several reasons beyond control.

On the occasion of the 2nd Quarter Regional Conference of PICPA Southern Luzon Region on June 25, 2004 at the Development Academy of the Philippines, Tagaytay City, LGU accountants who attended the said  conference set a meeting to organize a national association.

Accountants from LAMB, LALGA and ALAC met on August 6, 2004 at Twin Dragon Restaurant, Sta. Rosa, Laguna and formed a committee that will spearhead the organization of the dreamed national association of LGU accountants. A joint conference of LGU accountants was conceived  as the initial step.

With intercession of the Holy Spirit realize a dream come true to take the accountants to attended the One  Day Joint Conference of Local Government Accountants on August 21, 2004  at Montevista Resort, Calamba  City, Laguna. The Philippine Association of Local Government Accountants, (PHALGA) Inc. was born. The Officers and Board of Directors were  elected,  namely;
