resigning officers

We have a situation in which both the president and vice president have resigned, leaving only the secretary and treasurer as the remaining board officers. Who is now in charge of running the board meetings?

Until the vacancies have been filled, the secretary can call a meeting of the board to order and preside over the election of a president pro tem, who takes the chair for the remainder of the session. See RONR (10th ed.), p. 437, ll. 13-25.

Have they resigned in compliance with the bylaws? If so, the body with the power gets to elect/appoint a vice president who will immediately become president and then the body gets to elect/appoint another vice president who will actually be vice president.

Let's hope that they have enough sense to fill the vacancy in the office of president first, and then proceed to fill the vacancy in the office of vice-president.
