The regular presiding officer is usually called "President," but may also be called "Chairman" or something else. When this person is absent the Vice-President (or Vice-Chair, etc.) presides. When both are absent, or if there is no regular presiding officer, the members elect a temporary chair by majority vote.

That is true, but according to RONR if no vice president is present, before the assembly elects a chairman pro tem, the Secretary should call the meeting to order.  The assembly should then proceed to elect a chairman pro tem, presumably with the Secretary presiding until a chairman pro tem is selected.
