Maintenance Mania

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

Plan now to participate in the 2020 NAA Maintenance Mania program, hosted by AOBA.

Maintenance Mania® is a national competition where maintenance technicians compete against each other in skill-based games built around common maintenance activities. The competition includes a pinewood derby-style car race where the cars are made from maintenance supplies. 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. In this competition, there are CASH and DOOR PRIZES and the chance to win an all-expense-paid trip to the Maintenance Mania National Championships at NAA's Convention.

A Look Back at 2018 NAA Maintenance Mania

At the 2018 NAA Maintenance Mania held March 14, over 100 local maintenance staff from 11 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. Congratulates again to Doris Sierra of Southern Management for designing the “best looking” car again this year, and kudos to Jerry Longest of Gates Hudson for building the fastest car.

Top prize at the 2018 competition went to Pedro Martinez with Kettler Management. Other 2018 winners were Rachid Chabraoui and Jamie Lopez also of Kettler Management (pictured below).
