As a generalisation, groupings based on Diocesan lines tend to be 
called Guilds and those on counties Associations.  Districts tend to be 
based around a major town and cover only part of a county, some being 
called a "Society".  Societies tend to be, but are not exclusively, 
(e.g. Doncaster and District Society) neither based on either church or 
county boundaries.
