The Association is granted some rights and responsibilities from the ACBL, but the primary focus is to promote bridge in the metropolitan Atlanta area.  In that roll, the DBAA organizes, promotes, develops, and manages many different bridge activities to benefit the area players and to encourage new players to join our ranks.
