Maintenance Mania

Multifamily members are encouraged to support this fun, annual program that spotlights your hard-working maintenance professionals!

The Maintenance Mania Committee, led by Elisabeth Kirk with Ted Ross Consulting and Ramona Drieu with Servpro of Rockville-Olney, decided to postpone the 2021 Maintenance Mania Competition and Awards Reception. The committee is currently investigating ways to recognize and reward our maintenance professionals in 2021. Please consider joining our Maintenance Mania Committee meetings to become part of the discussions. 

AOBA is looking for the fastest maintenance techs around! Invite your entire maintenance team to come and compete in Maintenance Mania® where they can compete in maintenance-focused challenges and earn the title of Maintenance Mania® National Champion.

Maintenance Mania® is a national competition where maintenance technicians compete against each other in skill-based games built around common maintenance activities. Nearly 20,000 maintenance technicians have signed up to compete in Maintenance Mania® since the program’s introduction. This fun sports event was developed by the National Apartment Association (NAA) to recognize and celebrate hard-working apartment maintenance professionals. The program allows maintenance staff to show off their expert skills and knowledge, and meet their peers from around the DC region. 

The eight games to prove your maintenance skills during the Maintenance Mania competition include:

All technicians who would like to compete are required to build a race car from maintenance products ahead of the event. They can compete in one or all games. Win or lose, with your cheers and support everyone is destined to have a great time.

All participants must complete the liability waiver prior to the competition and must compete in all seven challenges plus enter a car in the race car competition to be able to qualify for a spot in the National Championship. 

Practice Sessions

The Maintenance Mania Committee hosts several practice sessions leading up to Maintenance Mania. These practice sessions include all 8 games. There is no cost to attend, but we ask that you pre-register so we know how much food to buy. All practices are held at SERVPRO of Rockville, 850 E Gude Dr Suite H, Rockville, MD 20850.  Stay tuned for more details.

A Look Back at 2019 NAA Maintenance Mania

At the 2019 NAA Maintenance Mania held in April, over 50 local maintenance staff from 7 member firms competed in games that highlight multifamily maintenance professionals. In addition, approximately 125 “Spectators” provided enthusiastic support for their company teams.

Each year, a highlight of the program is the race car competition, in which competitors build a model car - using at least one maintenance product or part, and race it down a derby-style track. 

Top prize at the 2019 competition went to Rachid Chabraoui with Kettler Management. Other 2019 winners were Pedro Martinez and Jamie Lopez also of Kettler Management (pictured below).
