NAA, together with presenting sponsor The Home Depot Supply (THDS), is conducting Maintenance Mania events to give maintenance professionals the opportunity to compete and earn honors as the nation's top team of maintenance professionals.
Maintenance Mania consists of seven timed events. For each competition, there are six skill-based competitive events and a racecar competition serves as the seventh event. The six skill-based events are designed around common maintenance workorder areas, such as plumbing, locksets and smoke alarms. Complete details are available at www.naahq.org.
