Does Robert's Rules have anything to say as to who run's our meeting?

The monthly meeting of our quilt guild is this Monday. There's a big chance both our President and VP will be unavailable to preside. Does Robert's Rules cover this situation?

Our president and VP might both be unavailable (there's a small chance our VP will be present but too tired from an illness to run the meeting).
Our bylaws state our meeting are run by the President or VP if the President is unavailable. The bylaws don't go any further in an 'order of succession'.
All other board members are listed in the bylaws in no particular order.
The three available board members are: Treasurer, Secretary, and Communications Administrator.
Does Robert's Rules cover this? Usually we conduct our meetings in a semi-casual way (friendly but orderly. We have one member who, if in the wrong mood, might snark about how we aren't following Robert's Rules.
thanks in advance
