    Post Changes in the society

    Hello. I was writing an essay and the following doubts came out.

    It's true that, as the years pass, the power of the organization to generate changes in the society has declined.
    • Is it "in the society" or "into the society"?


    Nevertheless, it's still considered an organization with enormous capacity for imposing change.
    • Is the adverb "still" in the correct place?


    He will be remembered as an example of how an executive should run such an organization as "name_of_a_company" is.
    • I'm not sure about the use of "such a" in this case.


    Thank you !

    Neither. It's "in society".

    Yes.

    It's OK.


    Thank you!
    See my comments above in red. Note that we don't leave a space before an exclamation mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
