The Vacation Commitment Summit, hosted by Take Back Your Time, will be a gathering of leaders in business, academia and media to discuss the challenges relating to overwork, over-scheduling and time famine in the U.S. The Summit is also designed to develop strategies to help encourage people to take their vacation by promoting a new perspective on the value of taking time off.
