Maintenance Mania Pinnacle of Excellence Golf Outing Trade Show



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.

Congratulations to our 2022 winners and good luck qualifying for Nationals!

Pinnacle of Excellence

The Pinnacle of Excellence Awards banquet is GIAA's way of celebrating the achievements of the finest professionals and organizations in the greater Iowa apartment industry. Professionals from all walks of the Iowa apartment industry, from suppliers to leasing professionals to management, walk down the red carpet and celebrate their accomplishments at the annual Pinnacle of Excellence Awards banquet.

Each year we receive numerous nominations for award categories for Management, Communities, Maintenance, and Suppliers. This year's categories give our members an opportunity at the NAA Excellence awards.

Fill the Truck 2021
We are excited to report that with our partnership with Food Bank of Iowa we received 669 lbs of donations! That equates to about 558 meals provided to food insecure Iowans. There were a few monetary donations as well – and $1 provides up to 4 meals – so our total meals provided is probably closer to 600.


Thank you to the Public Relations Committee for getting the partnership with Food Bank of Iowa set up!
