Write or type up the date on the agreement to establish an effective date. List the parties involved in the agreement, using full business or individual names and titles. For example, you may title your business as the "Service Provider" and the customer as "Customer."
Who Can Sign - For partnerships, only general partners can sign a contract, not a limited partner. For LLC's, a managing member or a hired manager can sign. For corporations, the company's president or chief executive officer is presumed to have the authority to sign. For an organization or association, a board president would have the authority, but may require a vote of the governing board to approve the deal.
