I get the impression that this is more about is your $CORP sending you, 
or are you paying for it on your own dime. A proxy for that is whether 
they're paying for flights, board, etc. I stopped going after I left 
Cisco, but might have been convinced to keep going if it were available 
online and cheap. Heck, I hosted the "social" at my house in SF when 
they inexplicably didn't have a meeting-wide one, and I didn't pay the 
meeting fees. Had I got a waiver, I almost certainly would have 
participated in the meeting.
