Business Report Authored by a Corporation or Non-Profit Organization

Note: For in-text citations, agency names must be spelled out the first time you use them.  However, you can establish an abbreviation in parenthesis and use that for all subsequent references.  For example, if you were referencing the American Nurses Association, you need to write it out for your first use and establish the abbreviation in the parenthesis: American Nurses Association (ANA).  For all subsequent uses, you can just refer to it as ANA.
