How do you style the possessive form of acronyms?
To form the possessive of any acronym, including those ending in S, add an apostrophe and an s. Therefore, the possessive form of UN is UN’s, and the possessive of OAS is OAS’s.
By contrast, to make an acronym plural add an s without an apostrophe.
It is best to avoid using too many acronyms in formal academic prose. An acronym is appropriate when you need to repeatedly refer to the name of an organization, especially one with a long name.
