Comma before "SO"

If so, please give me a call so we can set up some opportunities for you.

 

Why no comma after "call". I always always thought to use a comma before FANBOYS if it followed by an independent clause. Please explain.

 

I always thought it should be "If so, please give me a call, so we can set up some opportunities for you."

You are correct in your assumption. 'So' is a coordinating conjuction in this sentence, so the comma is required. You could substitute 'and'.
