The simple answer to that being there is nice, interesting, and helpful.

I have served as Working Group Secretary, Document Shepherd, Working 
Group Chair, Team Lead of a Directorate, and Document Editor.  I am 
also a RFC Author.  Some of the considerations for being there are to 
avoid internet connectivity issues, time zone difference, or if the 
person is expected to be there.
