LIFE INSURANCE ROUND TABLE emerged out of a dream of few dedicated agents (in 1988) who attended Million Dollar Round Table Conventions at U.S.A. Since 1983. These agents felt the need of an organization like Million Dollar Round Table to establish forum dedicated to fostering high standard based on professional approach to life insurance sales and service.

Today it is an event, an agent looks forward to attend where he/she shares his/her ideas with fellow agents and go back to use in the field confidently. As every organization grows thanks to the effort of a few selfless professionals under an equally dynamic leadership of each president year after year till date.
