UALR's Dr. Good Nominated to Acxiom Board

Dr. Mary Good, dean of the College of Information Science and Systems Engineering at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, has been nominated to join the board of directors of Acxiom Corp.

Charles D. Morgan, Acxiom's company leader, announced Good's nomination on Friday. The nomination will be presented to shareholders for approval at the company's annual meeting on Aug. 4.

Good has served as an advisor to four U.S. presidents and was undersecretary for technology for the technology administration in the U.S. Department of Commerce.

"Dr. Good offers a unique blend of vision, global perspective and practical experience to Acxiom," Morgan said in a news release. "Her expertise in technology, ranging from serving as a NASA advisor to membership on President George H. W. Bush's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, would make Dr. Good a genuine asset to our company."

Good also worked as undersecretary for technology under President Clinton and chaired the National Science and Technology Council's committee on technological innovation. President Carter appointed her to the National Science Board in 1980, as did President Reagan in 1986.
