That was indeed my intention with the initial idea proposal.
Conceptually, the meetup would be to break down any preconceived
notions that individuals may have. 

Of course, that isn't to say that there aren't many leaders in the
community that don't hold an _official_ position. It's mostly to put a
face to a name, to create open communication channels. I'd say it's up
the the team's discretion as to whether or not they'd like to delegate
the presence at this meetup.

This meetup is not compulsory for anyone, so if you can't go, and can't
delegate, that is also fine.
