NAA affiliates report Maintenance Mania results.

RESULTS ARE IN for five NAA-affiliated apartment associations--Southern Nevada Apartment Association, Austin Apartment Association, Arizona Multihousing Association, Fort Collins Apartment Association and South Coast Apartment Association--which recently hosted 2008-2009 season Maintenance Mania[R] competitions. At right are results, in minutes and seconds, from these competitions.

NAA, together with presenting sponsor, HD Supply, is conducting Maintenance Mania[R] events at affiliated apartment associations. This program, in which maintenance technicians compete in various skill-based games, has been modified and improved to ensure an even greater challenge for maintenance professionals. Maintenance Mania[R] provides affiliates an opportunity to offer an additional quality program for its members, create a potential source of non-dues revenue for the association and help members raise funds for education programs.

Featured games for the 2008-2009 season that will be standard for all Maintenance Mania[R] programs include: Mobile-Shop Blind Tool Identification, New York Wire Screen Repair, Price Pfister Faucet Installation, GE Appliance Repair, Fluidmaster Toilet Repair, Kwikset Lockset Installation, Kidde Fire Safety Installation and Philips Race Car Competition. NAA thanks the national sponsors for their support of the Maintenance Mania[R] program.

Each NAA affiliate may sign up for and schedule competitions that serve as qualifying events for the national championship June 27, 2009, at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Through September, nearly 50 NAA affiliates have scheduled events--an increase of 25 percent over the previous competition year.
