FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The interim president and CEO of the North Dakota State University Development Foundation and Alumni Association says he'd be willing to meet with employees who have left in recent months.

KFGO radio reports that a dozen or so employees have retired or resigned recently, some after being demoted or taking pay cuts.

Keith Bjerke (buh-YEER'-kee) has been tabbed to lead the foundation and association. He's a former administrator at NDSU and a former commander of the state National Guard. He's taking over for Doug Mayo, who has signed a settlement agreement with the organizations after 1 ½ years at the helm.

KFGO reports that the agreement gives Mayo four months of severance pay, $5,000 in relocation expenses, use of a vehicle and a letter of reference.
