How Do I Save/Name a Group Of Recipients In Messages for Future Quick-entry Of Those Same Recipients?

I am composing text messages on my Mac (Catalina) using the “Messages” app. I have several names to include in the “To” section. How can I save the selection of those names so that I don’t have to list/enter them separately each time I want to send another text to this group, again?

For example: I’d like to send a text message using “Messages” app to a group of 9 family recipients
a. I’ll enter all 9 recipients individually by inserting their name in the “To” address line of Messages
b. The message is sent and received by all nine recipients
C. Later, to send a text message to those same 9 recipients, I must enter them individually, again
D. I would like to save those 9 Family recipients as “FAM”, so that I only have to enter “FAM” & send the text

    You shouldn’t ever need to enter those 9 names again. Just return to that conversation and add a new message to it.

    Once you start a conversation, whether it is between you and one other person, or you and 9 other people, that conversation remains there, in the left sidebar of Messages, unless you delete it.

    If you want to send something to those same 9 people, just go to that conversation and send a new Message. It is typical for “conversations” to go on for years like this. In some cases, the word “conversation” doesn’t make as much sense, for instance if you only send one message every few months and no one really responds in a conversational way. But that is what it is called nonetheless.
