The Media Co-op doesn't have a traditional structure with one boss and a handful of minions. Instead, we decide just about everything, from the hue of the magazine's cover to the number of locals and the design of our t-shirts and stickers, as a collective. Editorial Collective Members are involved in running the day-to-day operations of the Co-op, and they are generally all part-time, paid staff. At-Large-Editors help with editing and recurring tasks related to the content of The Dominion. Each local listed below operates as an autonomous collective. Board members provide general oversight and assist with visioning and other tasks.

Without further ado, we introduce the cast and crew!
