“During that time, we have been through some major changes and challenges, and delivered many significant achievements that will continue to underpin the strength of APGA for some time to come.
“I am very proud of what Cheryl has achieved including the establishment of the Young Pipeliners Forum which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and now stretches across the country and into New Zealand and should provide a firm foundation for the future of APGA.
“Cheryl has led us through some very tough policy negotiations over the past decade and undoubtedly made a difference to the outcomes through her skill in bringing parties together.
“Other major achievements included the reinvigoration of our committee structures and the introduction of the pipeline engineering competency system. And there are many more over her 12 years.
