What helps us identify this question as a Relative Clause question as well as identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign:

who, which, that, whose, whom

While this answer choice corrects the original Relative Clause mistake by using the correct relative pronoun who to refer to a human noun, it is grammatically incorrect because of the use of an incorrect preposition. The correct idiom is to belong to, not to belong as.

While this answer choice corrects the original Relative Clause mistake by using the correct relative pronoun to refer to a human noun, it creates redundancy by using the wordy phrase who are the organizers of.
