Celebrate your maintenance professionals and strengthen your property teams by participating in Maintenance Maynia!
Join us for Maintenance Maynia!
All maintenance professionals should block off Wednesdays @ 1:30pm in May!
Instead of the traditional Maintenance Mania Competition, the Maintenance Mania Committee, led by Elisabeth Kirk with TRC Engineering, transitioned to Maintenance Mayyyynnnniaaaa - a jam-packed month of activities and events that celebrates our maintenance professionals and brings property management teams together while keeping everyone safe!
Every week there will be virtual workshops led by Maintenance Mania Committee Members. These workshops are unlike any virtual event or course you've attended! Our workshops are actually engaging and dynamic where full participation is required! Our amazing vendors on the committee are providing lots of gift cards for active participation. We encourage properties to use these workshops as team-building exercises as well. There is even a prize for the company who sends the most staff to participate in these workshops!
