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 (

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.

If the statement was taken from a web site, see the illustration for  "Nonperiodical Web Document, Web Page, or Report" at

Bear in mind that due to html formating limitations, the citations listed here may not exactly match the APA format required by your professor.  Be sure to check the Purdue sources cited to ensure that you have the correct spacing and punctuation for your paper.
