Weekly Roundup: June 19

Links to the articles I’ve reviewed and posted to Twitter between June 6 – June 19, 2011.  This week’s topics include:  U.S. Regulations  •  Jewish & Israeli Sector  •  Governance & Strategy  •  Fundraising & Marketing  •  Donors’ Strategy  •  Social Media & Internet

As last Sunday saw me preparing like mad for my presentation at the Kishor Conference,  this week is a double Weekly Roundup.
