ASSOCIATION OF BARANGAY CAPTAINS
The Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas (League of Barangays in the Philippines) and the Asosasyon ng mga Kapitan ng Barangay (Association of Barangay Captains) or ABC are formal organizations of all the barangays in the Philippines. Presently, almost 42,000 barangays are part of this organization, making it the association of Philippine local government units with the largest membership.
The current association is just the latest form of an organization that has been known by various names in the past, such as the Barrio Lieutenants’ Association of the Philippines (BLAP), the Association of Barangay Councils (ABC), and the Pambansang Katipunan ng mga Barangay (PKB),
Each barangay is represented in the League by their Punong Barangay (Barangay Chairman/Head/Captain). In case of his absence or incapacity, a sanggunian member of the barangay shall be its representative after being elected for this purpose by its members.
Self-reliant barangays advocating principles and practices of governance that help build and nurture sustainable, productive, and economically vibrant local communities.
To represent the interests and aspirations of Calaca’s forty (40) barangays and enhance their capability to effectively govern and manage public affairs through the exchange of information, human resource development, and technical services.
