Allison Mailer – Executive Director
Upon graduating from UBC in Anthropology with a focus on museum studies in 1994 Allison was offered a two month contract to cover the front desk and lead tours at the BC Sports Hall of Fame. Since then she has held many roles within the organization from leading the volunteer and education programs, managing special events, media relations, marketing and facility planning. From April 2010 through January 2012 Allison was the project manager for the major renovation project undertaken by the BC Sports Hall of Fame transforming the Hall of Champions and creating the Vancouver 2010 Gallery. Allison has always enjoyed the unique nature of working at the BC Sports Hall of Fame where the athletes and teams entrust the staff team with their inspiring stories and artifact treasures with the community. Allison has been on the Board for the International Sports Heritage Association and is currently the Vice-President Communications for the Canadian Association for Sport Heritage. Allison is a past figure skater and soccer player and is now enjoying sport mostly from the side line as she cheers on her future Hall of Famer.
Jason Beck – Curator and Facility Director
In November 2003 while attending the University College of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, Jason began a six-month practicum at the BC Sports Hall of Fame creating an organizational guide for the Hall’s archival collection. At the practicum’s conclusion he was hired part-time as a curatorial assistant for the summer, a position he maintained for the next two years while completing his B.A. in History at Simon Fraser University. Over time Jason’s roles broadened to include work with the artifact collection and creating museum displays, as well as research and writing. Upon graduation in 2006, he was hired as the BC Sports Hall of Fame’s full-time curator, responsible for managing the Hall’s enormous artifact and archival collections. A sports nut since a young boy and a competitive soccer player, Jason remains passionate about sharing with visitors BC sports stories of all kinds—the great, the weird, the tragic, the unknown—using items from the Hall of Fame’s remarkable collection.
