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?"
