Are you the fastest technician around? Here’s your chance to prove it!
Compete in Maintenance Mania® where you could earn the chance to compete for the title of National Champion*.
What is Maintenance Mania?
Maintenance Mania® is a national program offered by the National Apartment Association (NAA) and presented by HD Supply (HDS), where maintenance technicians compete against each other in various skill based games. In a matter of minutes, participating attendees could win an all expense* paid trip to San Diego for the NAA Education Conference in June 2013 where they will compete against the top 20 individuals nationwide. These top 20 individuals will receive *airfare, hotel accommodations and conference registration courtesy of HD Supply.
On Tuesday, July 31 from 5 pm to 7 pm, the GCNKAA will host a Pizza & Beer Night for maintenance techs. During this event, we will have sample games on hand to educate potential competitors on Mania and the HD Supply staff will be available to discuss the Pinewood Derby Car criteria.
In previous years, Chad Bernhardt of PLK Communities was one of the top competitors who competed in Maintenance Mania at the 2008, 2009 and 2010 NAA Education Conferences in Orlando, Las Vegas and New Orleans. Over $14,000 in prizes were won by the top 3 competitors and we are sure there is more planned for 2013.
