Running of meeetings


Recommended Posts

"If neither the president nor any vice-president is present, the secretary—or in the secretary’s absence some other member—calls the meeting to order, and the assembly immediately elects a chairman pro tem to preside during that session." RONR (12th ed.) 47:11(3)

A past-president is a reasonable person to elect to preside over that meeting, but that is not automatic under RONR. 

If the secretary or past president assume that the past president will preside, and no one objects, then they can proceed with that assumption. The way to object would be to nominate someone else to serve in that role.
