German term or phrase: Gremium
"Das ist ein ziemlich wichtiges Projekt", sagte die Präsidentin des Gremiums, María Jesús San Segundo in Mailand."

I've googled this lady's name but I can't find any organisation that seems to fit in with "Gremium". What does this refer to?

neutral  Horst Huber (X): Committee, board, council all belong to different worlds. The "Gremium" may not be exactly what the lady presides over, and she may be part of it "ex officio."
