Can "Non-auditioned" still have a screening process for members?

I have a favor to ask those of you who work with non-auditioned Adult community type groups: Do any of you have SOME kind of pre-screening or interview or reference process in place, so that you don't end up getting Mr. & Mrs. Poison-Litigious suddenly joining the choir? We have always said that we want to be open and welcoming to all, but there are risks to other members and the choir organization with this "come on in, no questions asked" approach. I'm sure I sound oddly paranoid about this... before it becomes a real issue, I am hoping to get some advice on how other organizations deal with this.
Thank you for sharing!
