To cite a position statement, use the APA guideline for the type of format in which the statement was originally found. Here are a few examples taken from the Purdue OWL: APA Formatting and Style Guide (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/09/)
If the position statement was taken from a report from a professional organization:
American Psychiatric Association. (2000). Practice guidelines for the treatment of patients with eating disorders (2nd ed.). Washington, DC: Author.
If the statement was taken from conference proceedings:
Schnase, J. L., & Cunnius, E. L. (Eds.). (1995). Proceedings from CSCL '95: The First International Conference on
Computer Support for Collaborative Learning. Mahwah, NJ: Erlbaum.
