Quorum Not Met Due to Resignations

According to my college organization's constitution, 3/4 of the Board must be present to conduct an Executive Board meeting. There are 4 officers, President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer. And at General Meetings, where our club members attend, three of the four officers must be present.

So according to RRO, what would happen if two Board members resigned at the same time? Thus leaving only two officers in power, which doesn't meet quorum to conduct business of any sort in either the EB meetings nor General meetings?

. . . 3/4 of the Board must be present to conduct an Executive Board meeting. There are 4 officers, President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer. And at General Meetings, where our club members attend, three of the four officers must be present.

Well, it depends on the precise wording of the quorum requirement. If it says "3/4 of the board" (or something similar) and you have only two members, both members would need to be present (since one would constitute only 1/2 of the board). But if it says "four members" then you're stuck.

The EXACT wording is as follows . . .

So it looks like you're good to go for board meetings but stuck on general membership meetings until you replace at least one of the two resigned officers. Are there any mid-term vacancy-filling provisions in your bylaws? It would be nice if the board had the authority to fill those vacancies.
