Law/Patents - Law (general) / Articles of Association (Belgian)
Dutch term or phrase: Bureau
I am puzzled by the term 'Bureau' in the following sentence of a Belgian set of Articles of Association:
Artikel 27 - Schorsing
Iedere gewone en buitengewone algemene vergadering kan gedurende de zitting worden verdaagd voor drie weken door het BUREAU, zelfs indien het niet gaat om de goedkeuring van de jaarrekening.

Any suggestions welcome.

bureau exécutif = executive board. but bureau 'tout seul' is board in your context.
