There are sixteen Districts and one Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) in North America. Each of the sixteen Districts is also part of a Region.
Each Region is served by a Regional Lead and a team of Congregational Life Staff. These staff provide a wide variety of congregational services such as long-range planning and organizational development, ministerial transitions, leadership training, and conflict management.
The directory page for each Region/District provides those local resource contacts. This is a list of each District and Region.
The MidAmerica Region includes 194 congregations in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, all but the lower southwest corner of Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan, western Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.
MidAmerica comprises the former districts of Central MidWest, Heartland, and Prairie Star.
The MidAmerica Regional Lead is the Rev. Ian Evison, ievison @ uua.org.
The Southern Region is a collaboration of Boards and Field Staff that has evolved over the last four years. In the fall of 2012, the entire Field Staff team was integrated into a working group of "Congregational Life Staff Consultants".
The districts in the Southern Region are:

As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that the sacred and the power of grace arise from the interdependent web of which we all are a part. As we build deeper connections between all of us, a powerful creativity arises that enables us to transform the world and each other.—Rev. Scott Tayler, Director, Congregational Life
