It seems unbelievable, but were already in the fourth quarter of 2002. As I look back over the year and how much weve covered in these pages, I find that I do have one major regret. This is that we did not have more of a celebration in our pages of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Million Dollar Round Table.
Of course, we reported on the MDRTs annual meeting, featuring many articles on sessions that were held there and interviews with its leaders. And yes, there was a big cake for MDRTs 75th birthday on the cover of the July 1 issue.
But this great organization means so much to the life insurance business, that I now feel we should have done even more to recognize its special place in the industry.
Thats why we have decided to incorporate a “Salute to MDRT!” in the issue of Dec. 2. And who is better qualified than you, our readers, to be a big part of this salute by letting us know how special the MDRT is to you?
What you have to do is very simple–just respond to this query: “What the MDRT has meant to me.”
Being great believers in the old adage that “brevity is the soul of wit,” we would like you to express your thoughts in 200 words or less. This may sound like a challenge, particularly as we remember times talking to MDRT members and hearing them rhapsodize over the group and its importance to them. But, on the other hand, our experience also tells us that there is nothing MDRT members like so much as a challenge.
