HMTC elects new board members


Aline Khatchadourian of Manhasset and Mark Stumer of Kings Point have been elected to the Board of Directors of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County.

Steven Markowitz, HMTC’s chairman said, “We are so pleased to have such prominent Long Islanders who have done so much for their communities join our board. It is a testament to the importance of the work we do, especially at a time when antisemitic incidents are on the rise.”

Thousands of students and adults visit HMTC every year for educational programming that utilizes the history and lessons of the Holocaust to teach about the dangers of antisemitism, bullying and all manifestations of intolerance.

Prior to that, she held various senior positions in Nassau County government, including director of finance, deputy budget director, and deputy comptroller. A Certified public accountant, Khatchadourian also has extensive experience in the private sector, having been a manager at KPMG, as well as controller and CFO of a successful manufacturing company. 

Khatchadourian served on the Manhasset School Board of Education for six years, both as vice president, and as part of the board’s audit committee. She is currently a board member of the Armenian Church Endowment Fund and is a member of the Audit Committee of the Armenian General Benevolent Union.

Stumer has practiced architecture for more than 35 years and is one of the founding principals at Mojo Stumer Associates Architects. He has led numerous notable architectural design projects, including ones for Temple Young Israel, North Shore Hebrew Academy, and Alert Fire House in Great Neck.

Stumer presently sits on the boards of the Architectural Landmarks Commission in Kings Point, and the Gold Coast Arts Center in Great Neck. In 2005, Stumer was appointed to the Board of Trustees of Pratt Institute and is now chair of Pratt’s Building & Grounds Committee.

Stumer has been recognized for his charitable work by being honored at the Tilles Center Swing for Kids golf outing, the Gold Coast Arts Center Gala, and the Temple Beth El golf outing. He and his wife, Susan, were the 2018 honorees at HMTC’s 26th annual tribute dinner.
