2020 DJAA Advanced Institute – CANCELLED

It is with great disappointment that we announce that the DJAA Advanced Toy Institute is being cancelled this July in Houston due to the Covid-19 Virus. We will offer the Toy Group next year in Houston. We have appreciated the support and participation in attending our Institutes each year and know we will be ready to go next year. Hope this finds each of you safe and healthy.

Best and thanks again,
Sam Houston McDonald, DJAA President
