On May 22, 1982-- one month after their first, albeit joint, conclave-- the five lodges of Section SE-9 (Nentico 12, Nentego 20, Guneukitschik 317, Amangamek-Wipit 470, and Ahtuhquog 540) were transferred to the Northeast Region. They became Section NE-6. Black Eagle 482, from NE-3A, was added that June.
This change reunited these lodges with their companion lodges from the old Region 3, which had been partitioned ten years before.

That year, NE-6 held their first conclave at Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation. A pin set had been ordered while the section was still SE-9,
which then had to be reordered as Section NE-6:
