On the heels of a Saturday jam-packed with incredible plenary speakers, illuminating and inspiring breakout sessions, and valuable networking time, Fellows for Life attending ASF’s 3rd Annual FFL Conference in Chicago (Oct. 17-18) have the chance to spend Sunday serving the local community at the first-ever FFL Conference Service Day:
