Pavlicek appointed to Columbia World Affairs Council Board

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA – Jax Pavlicek, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Columbia World Affairs Council.

The council, a non-profit and non-partisan organization, was founded in 1993 with a goal of building a bridge between the Midlands and international communities. In addition to serving as a catalyst for building relationships, the council also organizes seminars on important topics and dinners with foreign diplomats and international business leaders.

The council also works with the Sister Cities of Columbia, South Carolina program. This global initiative encourages citizen diplomacy to build relationships and foster multicultural understanding. Columbia currently has sister cities in Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, China and Ghana.

Pavlicek is excited to play a role in building business relationships between the Midlands and international communities. “These business relationships help to strengthen South Carolina’s role in the global economy, bring jobs to South Carolina, and help to increase South Carolinians’ understanding of international affairs,” she said.

Pavlicek is an active volunteer with other community initiatives such as Pawmetto Lifeline, the Midlands’ non-profit animal rescue mission, and the South Carolina Bar Young Lawyers Division’s Cinderella Project.

She’s also served as a judge at state and regional Mock Trial Competitions, and she has served as a volunteer coach and judge for the University of South Carolina School of Law’s Trial Advocacy Bar.

Pavlicek began private practice in 2014 after serving almost two years as a staff attorney for the South Carolina Court of Appeals.  She focuses on her practice at Burnette Shutt & McDaniel on privacy issues as well as litigation and appellate work.
