Allow Director to send "Notify Users" emails

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
Directors can't currently send anything in the way of group/user notification emails similar to OJS' "Notify Users" email feature for editors. I would suggest implementing the feature for Directors (not Track Directors) but allow them to specify contacting all/one of the following:
 Send this message to the users associated with this journal who have indicated that they wish to receive updates (x users)
Send this message to all users associated with this journal (x users)
 Send this message to all readers
 Send this message to all registrants
 Send this message to all authors
Some of this functionality may already be present in the Conference Manager role, but it might be handy to allow a quick-access mailing-list kind of feature for Directors.
