Each year the Society organises a September conference where aspects of Wells's life and work are discussed.All members receive a triannual newsletter and an annual journal, entitled The Wellsian.

Over the years, the Society has accumulated a substantial collection of books and pamphlets by Wells, and an archive of press cutting relating to Wells. This collection is currently housed in the Learning Centre at the Holloway Road campus of the London Metropolitan Universitymarker. The Society is also closely associated with the Wells Collections at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignmarker and Bromley Central Library, South London, the former being the repository of the Wells papers.
