We will not have meetings for the sake of having meetings. Having meetings because habit or tradition demands it does not make any sense. In order to have a meeting, one must justify why an in person meeting is superior to conducting the same communication by group e-mail.
I will also state that not everybody has to attend a meeting. If that meeting is not applicable to a person, then that person should not be required to come. For example, programmers should normally not be required to attend sales meetings.
