[[Image:Ea_building.jpg|thumb|EASports's Sports Studios in Burnaby]]'''Community Days''' (also known as '''Community Events''', '''Summits''' or '''Conferences''') are events held by video game developers such as [[EA Sports]], usually at their studios in Burnaby, British Columbia. and [[Community Websites2K Sports]] . Community and video game sites 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 several events with community member and longtime contributor [[Shane Hefty]] representing the site as at the first event , and current webmaster [[Andrew Begley]] attending the event events in 2006, 2007 , 2008, and 20082015. [[Pdub]] represented the NLSC at the first community event for the ultimately cancelled [[NBA Elite11]]. 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 time with the game.
