comisión gestora


Explanation:
La respuesta de aloria me parece acertada, aunque no te resuelve el problema. "Comisión gestora" no es más que una de las distintas posibilidades. Te reproduzco de un libro sobre actas: "The first set of organisational rules will be drafted [...] One person may be allocated this task or a smaller group, often known as 'steering committee'". Así pues, se trata de la comisión que redacta (a drafting committee) el borrador de las "rules of the organisation, a code of practice often referred to as 'standing orders'. A lo mejor ya sabes todo esto. En todo caso, creo que este "comité de orientación" se llama en España "comisión gestora". A ver si hay más respuestas y entre todos vamos afinando.

Comité Timón


Explanation:
Comité Timón sería el más apropiado, ya que tiene la connotación de un comité que guía en una dirección, lo cual es la intención del uso de 'steering'.

Comité de Manejo o Comité directivo


Explanation:
Definitivamente no creo que la palabra correcta sea mesa. En tal caso seria Mesa directiva, que es lo mismo que comité.
