Community Days (also known as Community Events or Conferences) are events held by EA Sports, usually at their studios in Burnaby, British Columbia. Community Websites such as the NLSC are invited to take part in the events, with the representatives being flown in and given a chance to road test an early build of the game as well as interview the producers and view presentations about the game's new features. Away from the studios, the events are somewhat of a social occasion and often include other activities such as a studio tour or in the case of the NBA Live 08 event, attending the 2007 NBA Draft.
EA holds Community Events for several of their titles, with the first NBA Live Community Event being held in 2004. The NLSC has had a presence at each of the events with community member and longtime contributor Shane Hefty representing the site as the first event and current webmaster Andrew Begley attending the event in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Events usually run for at least a couple of days with the first night giving representatives a chance to meet and the second day consisting of the presentations and hands-on experience with the game.
