    Richard Branson, Screw It, Let's Do It

    What a fantastic first day at the 2013 NAA Education Conference & Exposition! Keynote speaker Sir Richard Branson and real estate developer and reality star moderator Bill Rancic brought their A-game to San Diego!

    Our takeaway message from Branson: If a company is happy, it is invincible.

    On a day that brought you a billionaire businessman, a tradeshow that broke all previous records--from attendees to exhibitors--and an opening party that shut down two full blocks of the historic Gaslamp Quarter to the public, San Diego was definitely the place to be for innovation, inspiration and connections.

    Maintenance technicians, professionals who are often overlooked yet integral to the multifamily housing industry, were the stars of the evening as NAA convened the 2013 Maintenance Mania National Championship. For those of us who struggle to change lightbulbs, we stood in awe of the competitors as they raced to see who would be crowned the fastest maintenance tech in the land. Congratulations to all the competitors!
