The number required for a quorum *MAY* be specified in the Charter;
frequently charters allow something like 3/4 of the executive committee
(ie. officers) to be the default quorum. Additionally, many charters or
bylaws specify that the Exec Comm can act in the absence of a quorum.
AFAIK, if the Charter or by-laws specify 2 members as a quorum, it's legit.
One organization I belong to specifies a quorum as "those members present".
Better check the charter/bylaws *FIRST*.
