Kudos for being an ORCID early adopter, and thanks for letting us know! The best way to avoid having a new ORCID created this semester is to make sure your existing profile with ORCID includes your official TAMU email address -- the one in the campus directory record. Before minting new iDs for TAMU folks, ORCID will check for an existing iD in their system but their matching algorithm is looking for the email in our campus directory.
You can associate more than one email with your ORCID -- the trick to avoiding duplicate ORCIDs is making sure that ONE of those emails matches the one in your official directory record.
