What do the bylaws say about filing vacancies?  What do they say is the quorum of the board.

If 5 is your quorum, then you won't be able to do any business with 4 members. If you are a self-appointing board, then the law under which you are presumably incorporated may provide otherwise.

If you have 7 members on the board and the bylaws are silent about the quorum, how do you figure that the quorum is 5? 

If your bylaws are silent, then the quorum of a full board is 4, but if 3 resigned, the current quorum might be 3.

I believe we received the answers to J.J.'s two questions in one compound sentence, to wit: The bylaws don't say anything (about filling vacancies) and 5 is (what they say) is a quorum.

The board is voted upon by the general members. We need to appoint three people to fill the positions for two months until our next elections. However, there was a discrepancy on how that needs to be done.

Without a quorum you can't do anything.  Does is really say a quorum is five members or are you interpreting the wording of the quorum requirement to come up with the number 5?

If your bylaws allow, call a special meeting of the general members with notice that you will be electing board members to fill the vacancies. Otherwise, your hands are tied for two months.

The general members can fill the vacancies.
