We have a meeting today but are missing board members. Our vp and secretary have resigned and our president is not present today. Can we still have a meeting if we have a quorum? Who would run the meeting? Our county commissioner or our treasurer?

Since the VP and Secretary have resigned and the President won't be there a member should call the meeting to order and preside over the election of a Chair pro tem who would preside for that session (unless a VP is properly elected or the President shows up in which case that officer would take over). See RONR p. 453 for details. Also, since there is no Secretary you will need to elect a Secretary pro tem as well.

Any member can call the meeting to order and conduct a brief election for a chair pro tem (a temporary presiding officer) who will then conduct a brief election for a secretary pro tem. You could select your commissioner or treasurer but they have no automatic right to the positions.

Note, too, that you can, and should, have a meeting even without a quorum, it's just that you couldn't do very much.
