First: No, it does not require a bylaws change to make mediation mandatory.
It is the mediation process itself that makes it voluntary. The bylaws just
state that the AB may be called upon to mediate and the mediation process
was put in place to give a procedure if the AB is thus called on.
So, because it is a procedure, it would be much easier to "amend" the
mediation procedure than try to change a bylaw.
Second: Do you want to just leave the ambiguous word "standards" in place
with no definitions and concentrate on the punishment phase of mnigs?
IMHO: As long as there is ambiguity, those who have a little authority over
others, can use mnigs as a weapon ranging from personal dislike to political
