Possible new word: attendocracy?

I think I’ve just made up another new word (to go alongside my pet hate lawyerbomb):

a whole society run mainly by meeting attendees. Usually, the meetings are basically non-discriminatory (all members may attend) and attendance is itself enough to give one power, but those not at the meeting are positively ignored (no postal ballots or elections). Choice of location, price and time of meetings is key to power in an attendocratic society.

Did this word exist? Is there another existing word for this idea? Is it the same as meetingocracy? Is there a better word for it?

I’m broadly in favour of do-ocracy (even when it doesn’t work out as I want), so I think I’ve been handling attendocracies badly. Are they worth the time?
