This is confusing then, so what you are saying is that the person who signs the contract does not need to be a registered engineer, therefore no need to list PE number on the contract?
I guess I should call the board.

What you list is true, however there are other provisions in the code.
Under the current regulations, a non-engineer may be an owner or part owner provided there IS at least one registered engineer in charge of engineering work. The engineer legally must stamp and sign engineering work; however a contract agreement is not engineering work. A financial officer or other legal representative of a firm may create legally binding contracts without being an engineer. As long as a duly registered engineer is listed as responsible for the work, it does not matter which corporate entity actually signs the contract.
Oddly enough, there are direct provisions where a non-engineer owner cannot legally include their name as part of the firm name; but this does not prohibit the non-engineer owner from entering into legally binding agreements as the firm representative.
