I travel a great deal to participate in, and organize, in-person events that inherently need to be out in a range of US cities and countries around the world. It's expensive for an organization -- while regularly spending time from home base can take personal toll. ROI for smaller events, such as meetups, can be sometimes hard to justify. That's legit. But also misses out on opportunities to attract wider audience and start a foundation for events that can be bigger.
