If RONR is your parliamentary authority, then you DO have a quorum.  RONR establishes the default quorum as a majority of the members.


Oops..   I think I misread your question.  I thought you meant "If our organization has no quorum specified in its bylaws".....


If a quorum is not present at a meeting, you should  still  call the meeting to order, then you can do these four things:


1.  Recess (to allow time for others to arrive and to try to reach absent members)

2.  Take action to obtain a quorum, such as by calling absent members

3.  Set an adjourned meeting (such as for the next night or the next week)

4.  Adjourn

You can call the meeting to order, and then:  

Even in the absence of a quorum, the assembly may fix the time to which to adjourn (22), adjourn (21), recess (20), or take measures to obtain a quorum....
A motion that absent members be contacted during a recess would represent a measure to obtain a quorum.
