Do you have another tax deferred account such as a 401k or do you expect to have one in the future? Are you currently contributing to the IRA?
I think that it is desireable at time of retirement or withdrawal to have a mixture of accounts (tax deferred, tax free, and taxable) so you can tax manage your withdrawals to an extent.
If the $3K IRA is currently stagnant I would be inclined to convert unless there are other factors.
