What is Maintenance Mania®?
Maintenance Mania® is a national program offered by NAA and presenting sponsor HD Supply (HDS), in which maintenance technicians compete against each other in various skill-based games.
Each NAA local 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 at the annual NAA Education Conference & Exposition.
Participants must be employed by a community in good standing with their local association or an NAA Direct Member. Members interested in qualifying for the National Championship must register as competitors in the National Championship Qualifying Program with their local affiliate.
At the end of the competition year, NAA will offer the top participant from each of the NAA regions, plus 10 wild card participants, the chance to compete in the National Championship. The affiliate also can give the competing individuals various awards at a local level. It is up to the affiliate to decide how they will distribute awards to the winners at their event.
