There is a lot of value in face-to-face interaction.
While we can not always get the interactions we want, virtual 
interaction is no replacement for face-to-face.  Being able to chat with 
people between meetings.  Having folks in the same place to set up 
high-interaction discussions.  And multiple additional benefits.

Yes, funding matters.  But in my view that is secondary to the actual 
benefit of the meetings.  Which is why I attend.

Yours,
Joel
