I belong to a member organization. We don't own the land on which we meet, but we pay to be members. The membership board of directors is considering prohibiting conceal carry. Can they do this or does this need to be done by the property owners of the property? Am I liable as a member if there is an incident and they have prohibited CC? Are they required to do anything to enforce the prohibition if posted. For example, if a member has a gun in his car, and someone knows about it, are we required to ask him to leave? If we knowingly let one person CC are we effectively allowing CC and voiding our signage or if we knowingly let that one person CC and his gun is used in an incident, are we then liable and to what degree...the membership? The property owners?

Personally, I think the BoD deserves to wear the clown suits if they go forward with that prohibition. What are they afraid of?

Mia, you ask pertinent questions about a serious subject. You have obviously spent some time thinking about the issues. Unless an attorney, well-versed in Wisconsin law, happens to take an interest in your post and chimes in, I do not think you are going to get answers to your questions upon which you could rely.
If it were me, rather than trusting some unknown soul on-line, I would either dive into Wisconsin statutes, which are readily accessible and searchable on-line, or consult a gun-friendly attorney. You did not tell us much about your organization but might there be an attorney who is a member and who might be helpful?
Based on your post here, you sound like a person capable of digging out a lot of the answers yourself. If you are so inclined to try that approach, you might start here:
Wisconsin State Law Library
If nothing else, you might learn enough yourself to pose narrowly focused questions to a competent attorney, thereby reducing his time. Of course, the ideal situation is a gun-friendly attorney who would help you out for "the cause." Good luck!
