Ms. Blake asked me whether I would attend the conference?
is this sentence correctly punctuated?
Though Ms. Blake asked you a question, this sentence is a statement. You need a period at the end, not a question mark. This is called reported speech. I would change whether to if.
Ms. Blake asked me if I would attend the conference.
If you use direct speech, then you would have a question mark.
Ms. Blake asked, "Would you attend the conference?"
