In my former position, we also had to be careful when taking off vacation time since our conference was always in September.
On the communications side, I think you just have to know your audience. We try not to send communications when we know our dentists tend to be on vacation, or when our dental students are on school breaks. Two summers ago, we sent an email out the Friday before the Fourth of July holiday break. Nobody opened it. Probably should have seen that one coming.
