What is Maintenance Mania®


Maintenance Mania allows NAA affiliates to show appreciation for their maintenance technicians and recognize their importance to the apartment industry. Overview Maintenance Mania® is a national program offered by NAA with Presenting Sponsor HD Supply, in which maintenance technicians compete against each other in various skill-based games. Each local NAA affiliate has the opportunity to have their maintenance technicians compete individually to win various local awards and a chance to compete at the National Championship held during the NAA Apartmentalize Conference in June. If interested in qualifying for the National Championship, competitors must compete in each of the eight games. Individuals are not allowed to compete in more than one Maintenance Mania® event per competition year.

The Games

The event consists of seven skill-based games based on common maintenance activities, plus a race car competition. Participants build their race cars prior to the event, aiming to have the fastest and most creative car built out of maintenance supplies. All games are timed to determine the fastest competitor in each game and overall.

It is critical that the affiliate not modify the game structure or competition requirements. The consistent layout and the application of the rules and requirements at each event allow for fair and equitable comparison of participant times within each region and nationally to select finalists for the Maintenance Mania® National Championship.


HD Supply is committed to Maintenance Education

HD Supply, the Presenting Sponsor of the National Apartment Association Maintenance Mania competition, is proud to join their national sponsors to bring the apartment industry together to recognize the fastest maintenance technicians in the country.

Maintenance Mania is a highly competitive program for maintenance technicians and other apartment professionals to compete in various skill based games. More than 4,000 participants are expected to join the fun this year at over 60 events around the country.
