John Batten Member Services Director Resignation

Hi all, I would like to let you know that I'm stepping down from Member Services Director. I have decided this for two reason.

I did try an negotiate a pay rise but Chris said no ☹ and well, VATSIM doesn’t pay the bills so I must step aside to allow the department and division to continue
