On September 1998, the idea to revive and strengthen the umbrella organization for all the Leagues of LGU’s and local officials throughout the country was hatched in a meeting initiated by the Department of the Interior and Local Government. Two weeks later, a Resolution was made that changed the name of League of Leagues, which was established in May 5, 1997, to the Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP) in order to give it a distinct personality as an associate member of the International Union of Local Authorities (IULA) and to register the same with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Executive Order No.351 was issued on August 17, 2004 that recognized the Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines as the umbrella organization of all the Leagues and Federations of local elective and appointed officials.
