Maintenance MAYnia

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 @ 1:30 pm in May, culminating on June 2 for the awards show!

Instead of the traditional Maintenance Mania Competition, the Maintenance Mania Committee, led by Elisabeth Kirk with TRC Engineering and Boris Halstead with Southern Management Companies, transitioned to Maintenance Maynia - 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 engaging and dynamic and full participation is required. Our amazing committee vendors are providing 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 which sends the most staff to participate in these workshops!
