If neither the president nor any vice-president is present, the secretary—or in the secretary's absence some other member—should call the meeting to order, and the assembly should immediately elect a chairman pro tem to preside during that session.

RONR 11th ed., p. 453, lines 3-7.

In the absence of the president and vice president, the secretary should call the meeting to order and then a chairman  pro tem should be elected. 

Edited to add: I  see that Atul Kapur correctly answered the question while I was typing my response
