The Association of Mayors & Local Government Authorities (AMLOGAL) was formed in November, 2016 at a call meeting of the Mayors’ Council held in the Conference Room of the Ministry of Internal affairs (MIA). The decision to change form the Council to an Association was predicated upon the report of Hon. Rebecca T. Benson, Mayor of Tubmanburg and President of the Council from the 3rd United Nations Conference of Housing and Sustainable Urbanization (Habitat III) held October 2016 in Quito, Ecuador.
The Association is formed as a non-governmental, non-political and not-for-profit entity for membership into the United Cities & Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) based in Rabat, Morocco.

In early 1973 the national conference of mayors was established. The first meeting took placed in Buchanan City. Initially, the meetings were rotational. The venue was established based on the mayor that was elected President. Due to the rapid turnover of mayors, the conference lost its momentum. It became idle. After years of inactivity, it resumed functioning under a national habitat committee formed after the World Urban Forum (WUF) 2 held in Istanbul, June 1996. Sub national habitat committees under the aegis of the Ministry of Internal Affairs were to be established did not materialize. This body has been dysfunctional until its revival under the Cities Alliance Country Programme. It is now reactivated under the caption Association of Mayors and Local Government Authorities (AMLOGAL).
