The Northern New England District (NNED) of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations was created by the consolidation of the Northeast District (Maine) and the New Hampshire Vermont District of Unitarian Universalist Societies in July 2008. We have seventy active congregations within the boundaries of the states of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont including federated and community churches being served by our district.
