Yep, all of these things are "peak bodies". Roughly speaking it means an
organisation of "organisations" - companies, groups of people, experts in an

  This part sounds like the role of an industry consortium, under US law, and

  Other parts of your description sound like professional associations (e.g.
  associations of lawyers), and yet other parts like what we might just call
  national associations in the US (e.g. associations of people with
  disabilities) or international associations as the case may be.
